I've been reading this site and it sure is comforting to know that others have the same thoughts and worries. Have never been officially diagnosed by dr. as IBS, but as colitis? Dr. gave me Rowesa suppostories, which helped for awhile. Have had Gall Bladder removed, but D and panty accidents still happen occasionally. Seems to be related to high fat content foods and/or nerves. The worse part is the fear and actual panic attacks every time i leave the house of Where is closest bathroom and what if I don't make it? Carry extra undies, pads and always make sure I know where bathroom is. I have to really do a lot of self-talk when I go out.How do you deal with these panic attacks? Sometimes I get so afraid that I think I make my stomach/bowels churn and hurt -- I can just imagine myself having an episode. Does this happen to you? Has anyone tried the new product Calm Colon? I take Calcium and acidolpholous and it has helped me tremendously, but once in awhile I have sudden D and this breaks my confidence. Guess it's food or stress related?
