Hi everyone, I've been reading through some of the old topics on this forum and found out that there are others whom have a similar D trigger like mine. The trigger is that physical stress in the form of exercise, chores and other physical activities can bring on D. Many of those posts are quite old and there weren't any follow ups to whether or not they were able to overcome the problem. So I am hoping others who have a similar trigger can chime in on their situation and how they're dealing with it.I've read some articles on the forum stating that people with IBS are more sensitive to stress (physical or emotional), which can then worsen our symptoms. So I was wondering if there is a way to build up tolerance for the sensitivity. For example, usually after I do something physically related, like a few hours at the mall or a full day of cooking, I would feel exhausted. The next day, I would end up with a bad case of D. My initial reaction to this was to simply to cut back on physical activities so that I don't have to deal with the D, but I am growing tired of having to hold back on doing such simple tasks in life. So I am wondering if you can retrain your body to build up tolerance on physical stress and lower the sensitivity. I was thinking maybe I could take walks everyday and then gradually increasing the distance I go so that my body can adapt to it. However, I also fear that the D is a way my body is telling me to just rest/take it easy and that pushing myself would do me more harm than good. I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on this and many thanks!
