Is this IBS or something else?
The last 6 months my stomach have been quite upset.
It came sneaking up on me, i started to get this quite panic like need to go to the toilet, sometimes diarreah and sometimes almost normal.
It got worse and worse, untill one day I developed panic attacks from it, couldn't go out side and meet people because I could get the craps at any time any second.
I visited the doctor, they told me to try to stay away from milk, and so I did, it got much better, the quick panic like need to go to the wc went away mostly, but I still no where near normal, Im now either constapated about 6 days a week, and got the runns 1 day a week. something like that.
I've noticed that I can no longer eat food rich in fiber, e.g. sallad or dark bread.
I cant eat food with too much pepper, yet, spicy thai food works well.
I've read that alot of IBS patients have the feeling that they have to go even if there is nothing left to pass, I have this feeling too.. it feels like there is something there, but nothing..
So, does this sound like IBS or have I've just crashed my stomach with stress?
