Hi, I am 24 years old and un diagnosed, I dont plan to go through the process of elimination to get a diagnoses. I Suffer from anxiety induced IBS-D. Some years it's worse than others, I have suffered since May of 1999, and have been some what a slave to it since. I get anxious if I don't have a bathroom at my disposal. Eating out is a big no no, long trips in the middle of no where, also a no no. Sometimes even inter city travel is not an option. I fear soiling my self in public, or in my car. Right now I use Immodium for the D and anti-nausients because I get nauseated with cold sweats when I have an attack, but I also find that the drowsy effect of the gravol (anti-antinauseant) has a calming effect when coupled with my seat in the car reclined a little, eyes closed, and music I know the words to playing to distract me (when my husband is driving). I definately need something stronger for my anxiety attacks, Im thinking of going to my doctor for some benzodiazepines, for occational use while traveling, or intense social situations. I am so glad I found this support group, and I would love to talk to others with anxiety induced IBS.IM NOT ALONE!Worst Attack ever.. 5 year old daughter, and 12 month old son in the car with me, while husband is in the toysRus picking up a last min christmas gift. Anxious that I can't get my daughter out and get my son out and carry him into the toysRus to find a rest room. I got out of the car and paced around it about 5 times on the verge when I saw my Husband coming out. I left the car with my kids in it as soon as he was in sight and said be back in a bit. I would have sh** my pants before leaving my kids. But I totally wanted to!*phew!*
