My flareups tend to be twice a month or so. Usually, they are following high stress times, or when I've not eaten 'properly'. I'm back on probiotics and trying to eat well. But, last night I had the 'C'. I always thought, wow C must not be as painful as 'D', but oh was I wrong. They both are miserable. I was all bloaty, cramped, pained, and nauseous. I'm not such why nausea always seems to come with mine.
Anyways, I have major anxiety about even having to go now. I get a 'hot/cold' feeling and a feeling of impending doom. I know it's irrational, but that really doesn't help the way I feel. I am nervous about even going to my husband's Christmas party tonight because of the 'what ifs'.
IF any of you have something to share regarding the horrible panic/anxiety that goes with BM please let me know. I'd be very grateful.
PS: I do wonder if my GERD makes things much worse. I have GERD and an ulcer.
