    Yes, it can be. I am about to complete a blog post about how stress indirectly affects your stomach gas but in a nutshell:

    1 – stress makes you breath in harder and in turn, sucks in more air than you need

    2 – stress makes you desire certain food cravings that you should not be eating, and is bad for your body, its not the quantity of food you eat but the type of food you eat

    3 – stress can affect your heart , or you might get headaches and all these indirectly affects your stomach

    4 – stress can sometimes send signals to your brain to either increase the flow of the waste material in your body or slow down the process

    There is an observation done that stress does affect stomach gas but how exactly it affects the body is still unclear. But a lot has to do with the brain sending the wrong or irregular signals to all parts of the body, especially to the intestines and stomach when your stress starts.

    Hope this helps
