Alright everyone, let me start off by saying I have MAJOR health anxiety. I had the stomach flu on Halloween of 2016, and since then, I've had stomach issues. I've never suffered from any of this so with my health anxiety, I'm imagining the worst. I had blood and stool tests and they came back normal. My doctor and my Gastro think it's PI-IBS and/or anxiety induced IBS. My anxiety has me convinced it's something terrible and I'm TERRIFIED of it being IBD. I'm getting a colonoscopy for peace of mind. Anyway, after reading some posts, I've realized that most people have it worse than I do- my symptoms come and go. I've had random diarrhea about 5 times since Halloween and some constipation. I also have gas, bloating, and discomfort--- IF it was IBD, it would be worse than what I'm describing, right? I'm not asking you to lie to me, but I feel like it's worse "in my head" because this is something I've never experienced before, and because my anxiety makes it so much worse. I'm so incredibly terrified.
