I hate it when people (pretty much everybody now adays) tell me my IBS-C is psychosomatic and that I myself am pretty much causing it. I suffer greatly with it daily.However, something bizarre happened today that made me finally believe that I do have a tendency to somatizise my feelings, even if I don't fully understand how the process works:I had to give an important workshop today in front of many professionals, so of course I was naturally experiencing some stress. Nothing I couldn't handle though. However, the minute I began the lecture, my ears became seriously plugged and I could barely hear myself!I've noticed this sometimes happens when I become stressed, but this time it remained for the entire duration of the workshop: over 7 hours!This makes me conclude that I tend to somatizise my feelings and this is causing my IBS.Now for the big question: HOW THE HECK DO I TREAT THIS?!
