Three months ago I got a nasty stomach bug, that woke me a six with diarrhoea. Long story short, ever since that day I wake early shaking and sweating and my tummy in over drive and have to dash to the loo. It may sound crazy , but I am scared of the loose stools now and in a bad state.
I have had cameras up and down, stool tests, blood tests and all clear, which is great I know. But I don't know how to get out of this vicious circle of fear now. I can't go anywhere and feel close to tears every day. The doc has offered me various calming medication, but it doesn't solve the problem. I am wondering if I have developed ibs? It makes it hard to eat too as I am worried about the consequences. If anyone has suffered the same and got over it all somehow, I would be grateful to know. Thanks
