: I feel that I have a different case from most of the people who's messages I have read. I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome when I was 18. I have never experienced a problem with this disease until last August. Since then, I am unable to go to a bar, resturant, mall, talk to someone for long periods of time, or be in a stressful situation without feeling like i am going to have an accident. I have been to several doctors who have no idea how to help. And I was recently put on Luvox, for obsessive cumpolsive dissorder(which I don't believe I have). I felt it may be working, until recently when I now have this urgent feeling to immedietly go to the bathroom while I am at work. If anyone has a similar situation and would like to chat plaese write.

Hi Jennifer. I have read a little about social anxiety. It sounds like this might be something to look into. I think they prescribe Paxil (spelling?) for this. Then there is always our friend Harry's advice, start taking fiber EVERY day. This will help with the urgent feeling, and it will make you more regular. Sometimes it takes a while for you to notice a lot of improvement, so be patient. I would recommend looking back at some of Harry's posts, he offers some great advice. Best of luck to you, Janet
