Hi ive just recently been diagnosed with this and seem to have the same sort of problem as you. When i get up in the morning i feel the need to go but it is very small and very soft BM i have, i then feel unfinished and try to go again and it happens to me again. This happens with me everyday and i have changed my diet to more healthy foods etc... Seems not to be working, i was looking online to see if there was anything that would help to make BM's more "formed" but i have found nothing so far. IBS can get worse the more you think about it, which is very hard not to because it is more psychological than anything.
hi, i don't know whether i'm actually making my ibs worse with my anxiety or if the ibs is making my ibs worse.For a year now my ibs and anxiety has been a problem for me. I'm having my anxiety treated with cbt and i'm improving more and more each day. My ibs is more settled but i still have bad days.Today i had a normal bm in the morning, then 4 hours later i felt a slight urge to go again, just quite small stools. Then approx an hour later had a slight urge and managed anothe few small stools.I know that due to my anxiety i'm hypervigilant about any little sensation in my body, so i don't know if i'm misreading the signals.and maybe i'm not really needing to go at all. But if that is the case then why am i always able to pass a stool when i try?Anyone experience this or have any thoughts on this?

This realy isn't all that abnormal to me... not sure why you would be concerned with this.

This could be the cause for your concern.....Try not to overthink things if possible and ........ not sure you should even be on here...... right???

I meant "normal" for IBS.
I don't think BQ understood what you meant. To constantly have the urge to go isn't normal. Why can't you be on here? You're learning more about what's happening. Anxiety definitely plays a huge part in this.

Wow then don't check this anymore then.
hi kaminari,I have to say your post has actually made me more anxious. This is the reason i'm supposed to stay off these forums. I suffer from health anxiety and when i read your post it scared me.
