I was wondering if anyone has ever gotten dizzy, sick, or almost wanting to faint? I have problems in stores and sweaty palms. I can have a few good days and then I have about 3-4 bad days where I can just be on the couch and that's IT!! I can't take the heat, feels like someone is crushing my chest and I can't breathe. Thought maybe someone could help me.Kasi

Your episodes sound sort of like panic attacks. Do you think they are related to your ibs? Working on deep breathing and changing the venue seemed to work for me. Good counselors or even drs. may be able to teach you some breathing and calming techniques that could help. You can overcome this! Good luck

Definitely panic attacks. See a therapist who specializes in anxiety. I have the same problem from time to time and I am also looking into some therapy. I do diaphragmatic breathing counting to 4 on each breath and that helps a lot. Try it.

Sounds like panic to me too. See a therapist, or go to a psychiatrist to prescribe some meds; sometimes one or the other works better.
