Multiple Conditions are they alll connected? Are they exacerbating each other?Generalized Anxiety IBS Depression tenesmus ADHD endometriosis

Hi I'm new to forum. I have multiple conditions which include Depression, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, History of Endometriosis (which resulted in a hysterectomy a few years ago). I have also always suffered from symptoms of IBS alternating stool pattern. I've never been formally diagnosed but I thought since I was taking a Antidepressant already there was not point in exploring it further, Recently I was also diagnosed with ADHD and prescribed a stimulant medication (Vyvanse). Along with that medication I also take Trintelilx (Antidepressant) Tempazepam/Restoril (Insomnia), Clonazepam/Klonopin (Anti-anxiety).
Recently since the introduction of Vyvanse I seem to be suffering from feeling like I have something suck in my rectum. Looking on the forums it sounds as if it could just be rectal irritation or tenesmus.
I'm kinda at a loss at how to manage all my conditions, medications and symptoms? Is there anything I you might suggest to help relieve the tenesmus? I'm looking for something natural so I don't introduce more chemicals into my body. Of course if this persists and I can't relieve it on my own I will follow up with my Doctors.

welcome to the board. i'm really sorry for all your problems.
i don't know what to suggest for your problem with tenesmus but we do have a number of people here who suffer from it . hopefully one of them can give you some answers. or you can do a search on the board to find out how people deal with it. from what i remember, a lot of people try to just ignore the feeling and try to distract themselves.
here is one of those posts:
and yes, like you said, consult your doctors... good luck. hope you can find some relief. take care.

Find a fmp/gp etc who specialises in the conditions you have been labled with.
I think considering you have endometriosis and adhd, they will probably look in to heavy metal tests etc.
Incomplete evacuation, ibs type symptoms, anxiety etc... maybe food intolerance test, vitamin deficiency tests etc, drug side effects.
Look at dr mark hymans website for his treatment plans for adhd. Its very different to a gps one.
