New Job Flatulence

Hi everyone, I have read a lot of the messages on this forum and am glad for the help this entire site gives me and others. Like my topic title states I have started a new FT job after working PT for several months. Unfortunately, I am having a major resurgence of symptoms of ibs-d including non ending wind. I know part of the problem is anxiety caused by going from working with hardly anyone around me all time to the dreaded office cubicle regime with like sixty people around. Also, Right now bowel movements have gone up from like ok 3-5 over entire day to like 10+ within first 6-9 hours a day. Anyone have any advice on how to get back to more manageable level I know it won't go away (I have accepted that after years of denial of the problem). I have had an emotional/psych breakdown caused by this same problem resulting in lost job before so I am trying to get a mental health appointment in next few days but until then wondering what to do. I have used peppermint capsules in past but the wind just started to smell like peppermint within hour or so and I am on a Lomotil generic right now.Thanks, Rob
