Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and haven't actually been diagnosed with IBS but runs in the family and assumed. Short back story is my IBS mainly revolved around severe pain and gas which doesn't seem to follow any pattern aside from when stressed or anxious (suffered with panic disorder for as long as I can remember).

Recently though I had my first case of constipation I've had for years. Unfortunately my anxiety was very bad then too.

I had a feeling of the urge to go in my rectum almost constantly but was unable to go for a few days but when I finally did go I still had the feeling I wasn't finished

So over the course of the day I'd occasionally go to loo to try again,

I am having BMS but still have the urge to go in my rectum and it's driving me insane! I wonder if it's me thinking about it or if I just haven't cleaned out my system since the constipation or if something might be wrong!

I occasionally get spasms during a BM which can be very painful but I only do when I'm anxious and wonder if it's because I'm sooo tense anyway that my muscles just spasm from the incredible tenseness?

I worry something's really wrong, has anyone else had same or similar?
