I have felt that way....too many times. I also have IBS-D. Dx in March '06. My IBS-D came out of nowhere and I'm still dealing with it. It stresses me out and puts me in a panic...at times, I felt like I was going to die. BUT...I didn't! I think it's a lot to do with why we have IBS-D. I think that our personalities may contribute to some of it. I have always been a high-strung individual. I think it just caught up with me & now I'm paying for it. It has slowed down a bit...I still have it though. SOmetimes, I feel like I fill up fast when eating, I get acid reflux, and I also have a bad taste in my mouth a lot of the times...I think it all goes along with IBS-D. It must, because 2 GI specialist haven't found anything wrong wiith me...just that I have D everyday...so they say I have IBS.
I'm 7 mo. pregnant and since being pregnant, it was slowed down quite a bit...not normal, but better...I'll take "better"! I hope it doesn't come back full force after the baby is here. My "D" always hits me right when I get up in the morning. I also pass mucus, which is grose...but it's okay to talk about it here and that is nice to know. It helps to talk about to get some of that "worry" out of your system. It's nice to know that you're not alone.
