People and doctors both will tell you that IBS doesn't affect any other part of your body, organs and such. But it does. Not only do people report anxiety as one of their symptons but I've found other things in my life that it affects. What always made me mad was when doctors would try to tell me that my IBS was caused by anxiety, well it isn't. I have anxiety because I have IBS. My life was great before this all started, I didn't have anything to worry about. I'm getting off track here, what has come to light most recently is problems with my teeth,bones and joints. Because one of my triggers is dairy I didn't eat any dairy. I don't like taking pills and I don't react well to vitamins and such.

I never had problems with my teeth until recently. I've spent nearly a grand in the span of a couple months because of cavities and a crown. A CROWN! I'm only 20, I brush twice a day,floss and use mouth wash. I didn't understand what was going on. I don't drink pop because the sugar hurts my stomach and my IBS keeps me from eating a lot of junk food so where was this coming from? I hadn't had any dairy in 5 years and wasn't taking calcium. After telling my dentist that he said that it's very likely the cause of my problems because my body was taking calcium from my teeth and bones.

So my advice to all you is to take vitamins to make up for your trigger foods.
