Just wondered if anyone else suffers from flare ups in certain places/situations? Because my ibs is hugely linked to anxiety I get it a lot.
For example I've had a few flare ups in my local town centre - a familiar place, toilets accessible so no real fear. But because it's happened once I now find that whenever I go to town I get the urge. I almost always have to visit the public loo, the attendant must be sick of the sight of me. Then once I've been im OK again.
So weird but I read somewhere that our brains associate certain experiences with certain places. Happens to me at certain times of the week too, usually when I'm leaving work.
I sound crazy lol. Maybe it's just me.
