Can someone tell me what symptoms are IBS? I dont want to google because I get more anxious and right now I am already getting pretty anxious. Had a good day but sunday evening I can get anxiety and I think most of the time it's because my work week will begin but lately anxiety has been worse. I have been having health issue and last week I had a ct scan. I was so anxious about iv iodine, I had never had that. I got thru the scan with alot of anxiety but I got thru it. Now the waiting for results is awful because I am such an anxious mess that it almost ruined my saturday. I woke up to a panic attack and off and on I was getting gas or sone heartburn and that made me more anxious. I feel tightness on left side stomach, gurgling, some pain lower left stomach. The tightness sometimes is alot and there is some relief when i have bowel movement. Also I have been having more fiber and trying to do a not drastic cleanse because I have problem beińg regular for a long time. I have had axiety off and on for long time and have taken med and done therapy. I find that when I am not feeling well, anxiety goes thru the roof and it is awful and affects my family. I have trouble sleeping lately but also on a positive note I am changing my diet to lose a few pounds which I need to. Also I have had blood work recently and have some anemia so I obsess as to why. I am going thru menopause, not hot flashes yet, had some night sweats, tired some and do feel some hormonal imbalance. Sorry for too much information. Sometimes I get consumed by anxiety and tonight is one of those times.
