Dave,
Panic attacks, stress and anxiety play a HUGE role in IBS. I am currently in a stress management group and the relaxation/cognitive behavioral therapy techniques help me somewhat when I am having a bad day of it. These techniques don't make my IBS disappear, but it helps to try and be relaxed and realize this is not life-threatening (although it sure feels that way sometimes).

I am thinking good thoughts for you... take care!
