Listening to shiurim when one has an upset stomache


If someone has an upset stomache to the point where they can’t wear tefillin, is he allowed to listen to shiurim online? It would be very hard if I can’t, but I understand that if that is what H-Shem wants, we have to follow His will even if it means what we can’t learn torah.


A person is allowed to think in learning or to listen to a shiur even if he feels the need to go to the bathroom, and even if the feeling has reached “baal tishaktzu”, (meaning that the person has a string urge and he has to “hold it in”.) Speaking in learning¬†though would not be permitted in such a situation.
