I'm going back and forth between IBS and anxiety in a vicious cycle. I am emetophobic so whenever my IBS acts up, my anxiety sky rockets, then in turn the IBS gets worse. Any slight stomach feeling leads to anxiety, then it worsens. I am on meds for the anxiety as needed, but i'm so tired of my body running my life.
Anyone else experience this? I've been trying meditation, limiting my food intake, taking acidophilus when i remember, and avoiding any trigger foods.
I just don't know what else to do. I feel trapped.
