I have been tentatively diagnosed with IBS last year- my symptoms are that I have to rush to the loo every morning and don't leave the house until i have been again at least 3 more times. At work I have to go before meetings as I get nervous that I may need to pass wind in front of people- this is effecting my whole life. I have stopped going to church as I don't want to embarrass myself by passing wind- and I have now got to do a lot of training days for my job which I enjoy but I'm afraid of having to rush out mid sentence due to this condition. To combat it when I'm at work I don't eat breakfast which seems to help. But I know this is not the way. My GP was lovely but I feel she's not sure what to recommend I do other than go on anti depressants which she mentioned and I don't want to go down that road.
Is there anyone out there with similar problems I just feel so helpless and it's really getting me down I need help!!!
