can i ask for ur opinion?

ok... im 17.. and because i suffer from an anxiety disorder/phobia its really likely that i'd have IBS.... so when i actually began to show signs of it.. i strted to get a bit worried..
i was over my exams.. wen i was bound to be extra more stressed than usual... but i began to get constipated bloated and felt really sick a lot of the time... and then theres mucus in the stools e.t.c.
so i was just wondering, do u tink this is actually IBS? or just one of those funny phases that sumtimes the digestive system can go thru?
its calmed down alittle now.. now that my exams are over.. so its making me think, you know?

would be gr8ful for any replies from u kind ppl, thnku.

Jen xxxxx

Re: can i ask for ur opinion?

Hi, im 22 and right after i turned 21 i started to get horriable upper GI problems. For over a year i went from doctor to doctor and had every test possiable done. they told me it was IBS. Well descided to go see a thearipist because i have anxiety issues thanks to this. Ive only gone twice now but my dr thinks that i have depression and anxiety and that is what is causing my gi problems. My father also started to have the gi symtoms and went to the doctor and he got the same diagnosis ony way faster then me. If you still have problems and have been through all the nessasary tests its worth a try.
