Beginning in February of this year, I started having digestive troubles that brought me into the doctor's office more times than I';D like to admit. I know I'm prone to a bit of anxiety when it comes to my health, but this was ridiculous.
Now, it's important to note that my father had a serious intestinal condition that lead to cancer (which I still believe could have been prevented through better screening and lifestyle), but other than that I had no serious risk factors or symptoms. I was just in real discomfort both physically and mentally.
I don't think we can say it was true IBS, as the symptoms diminished greatly when I got the anxiety under control. Still, I got a sense of what it must be like for people with IBS. I think a lot of us take our 'bowel schedules' for granted. Having them messed up is hugely inconvenient.
Does anyone else have any fun 'temporary IBS' stories?
