Not sure how to talk about this, Im new to the web site and have never really talked to people about this other than my close family and telling people I have "stomache problems". 6 or 7 years ago my Dr. told me I had IBS...I didnt believe her and insisted on tests...after having cameras put in places they shouldnt go (both ends) they still insisted it was just IBS...and a #### load of food intolerances, sensitivities and allergies. I also have an anxiety disorder and unfortunately for me...my IBS and anxiety have become inseperable friends. When my IBS acts up I panic and when I panic it upsets my stomache..so I end up in a vicious circle that usually last for hours in the bathroom until I manage to fall asleep...and even then my stommache is unsettled for a few days after. Im just wondering if anyone else has issues with anxiety around their IBS?
