| | ibs & excessive sweating around anus
I've had IBS for many years. Constipation/stomach pains used to be the major problem. Then last year I started eating healthier (more fiber, less fat, less junk food, less alcohol, no caffeine), and then the constipation became much less frequent.
Since then, I've frequently had loose watery stools. Metamucil seems to help somewhat, especially in reducing the number of times I have to go.
Whenever I do feel the urge to go, I start to get the "nervous stomach" feeling, and I start sweating excessively in and around my anus, and I notice lots of dampness on my underwear. Do any other IBS sufferers have the same problem?
Also, this seems to occur mostly in the morning.
