Hi fellow IBS sufferers. I am new to all of this. Not really sure what I am expecting to find on here,maybe someone else who is having the exact same problem as me perhaps. Anyway..
For years I considered myself to suffer with IBS but I never had any pain with it,just found myself going to the toilet an awful lot more when I became anxious,which is a lot. After many years suffering I decided a couple of weeks ago to seek help from my GP. She said when I become anxious,it releases hormones which makes my bowels spasm. And this creates the need to go and urgently. She suggested that I take buscopan as it is an antisposmadic. I've been taking 2 tablets twice a day for about 2 weeks and so far I'm still pooping when I'm anxious. Has buscopan helped for anyone else and what other things are people taking? I am seeking help for my anxiety too as I know that is the root cause.
Any tips would be so helpful. I currently feel and always have that my life is ruled by my stomach.
Thank you 😊
