So, curious if anyone else has similar symptoms...
I know morning bowel problems are somewhat of a staple with IBS. I was doing well with my IBS for a long time, and then came down with severe anxiety
due to a medication reaction. (Singulair and a streroid nose spray together.)
Since then, it seems that I've been having primarily morning movements... always fairly soft, and usually multiple. Depending on my level of anxiety, I can be woken
up to have them. (Early.) Most days... it's like... I go several times in the early morning, and then not again the rest of the day. This has been on and off (mostly on)
since last June. I've attributed it to anxiety and IBS.
I've recently come down with gastritis, as well. I don't think it's related, though the gastritis could be stress-related... or acid-related.
So, there are a few issues going on here.... but mostly I'm wondering if anyone else has this sort of weird bowel pattern that's so consistent, particularly if it's
emptying in the morning. I've tried fiber... not much help. (I used to take Metimucil every day until the gastritis.)
Any ideas? Thoughts? Suggestions?
