I'm new here. I dont know if I have Ibs, but I sure have all the symptoms. Mine are mostly triggered by stress. Have you ever known anyone with Ibs that has a phobia about going #2 in a public restroom? I have that. I can use one, if it's an emergency, but that's about it. My mom lives in the next town over, and had to make me a key so I could use that bathroom if i had too. This is funny, you'll probably laugh, but sometimes if i have to use a public bathroom, i take my 3 year old in with me, after I'm done, I'd say" Good girl, you went potty" hehe, but now she says," No i didnt, you did.". My husband is also getting annoyed with me becuase of hurried trips to the bathroom. Any thing you could share with me would be nice. THanks.
