I wake up in the morning almost dreading the day ahead for fear of how I’m going to be that day ...
I’m getting more & more anxious about my the IBS & constipation as it’s definitely not improving , in fact it’s getting worse , which I’m not helping with , as the more stressed I get about it the more my stomach goes into knots & then the constipation gets worse , it’s a nightmare .
I eat a healthy diet , high in fibre , but low FODMAP, I drink at least 4 litres of water a day & walk about 20,000 steps a day .
I take Prucalopride but have had to add Senna as well now , as things have been slowing down .
I’m doing everything I should be to help with constipation, but still it’s getting worse .
I do breathing exercises & listen to mindfulness videos to help with the anxiety, and also tried antidepressants but couldn’t get on with them as they made my stomach even worse .
Can anyone offer any advice on the anxiety please as I’m getting so wound up with continual bad days & the menopause isn’t helping either !
Thank you & apologies for the long post ..
