Hello everyone. I am an IBS sufferer, just found out early this year. I suffer with all sorts of stomach problems, IBS and Gastritous. It is the most unconfortable feeling. If I get anxious, I have to make a run for the toilet, if I get sad, same thing. If I don't eat, (b/c I am sometimes too scared to), my tummy gets really bloated and burns, then I eat and well, it goes down hill from there. Has anyone seen "Gun Shy"? I can't remember the lead actors name but he's well known, Sandra Bullock plays as his nurse... Anyway, he reminds me of me. I go to the bathroom at least 5 times a day, on a good day. My doctor scheduled a Colinoscopy and I was too chicken to do it. I still am. I know it is something I have to do, I am just too chicken, mostly embarrassed. I'm glad I found this web page, it really helps to read other people's experiences. If anyone out there wants to share with me your experience with a Colinoscopy and upper and lower GI, I would appreciate it....
Thank you all so much.
