Hi there, I ran across this site and was hoping to find some answers to my questions. Over the past 2 weeks or so I have been having a terrible time with my bowels. They have been green as of late, and pretty loose. I have a horrible pain in my abdomen. I don't like to eat now, because 30 minutes later I find myself rushing to the restroom. I also noticed when this started I have been having pretty bad dizziness. I currently take medication for panic, though it's under control, but I felt that with panic maybe I'm more likely to develop IBS? Thanks for listening, Kim

Kimi, I too get the dizziness and take anti-anxiety meds. It is apparently quite common for people with IBS to be to be taking anti-depressants and/or anti-anxiety, seems they go hand in hand. Try not to be afraid to eat. If you know it's making you run to the bathroom, try not to eat it for awhile. There's lots of ideas on this BB that will help you make decisions like that. Some of the recipes people are eating hurt my stomach just reading them. Some people can eat things I just cannot.Glad you are here, you will gets lots of help and info here. Just knowing others are in the same boat makes it's a little easier to cope sometimes.Sharon

Thank you all so much for your advice. I did go to the doctor and they are running some tests. I'm careful when I eat now, and what I eat, and it seems to easing up a little. My panic symptoms seem worse though. I will go to the doctor for that on the 22nd. Keep you all posted!
Kimi
