I'm new to this site and hoping anyone can shed a little light on this issue...
I have ADHD, Panick attack disorder and now IBS! My ADHD helped to promote my panick attack disorder... and now my IBS is bringing it all back. Everytime I start to feel sick-which has been once a week now-I also start to have panick attacks. This does not help at all! I get this horrible feeling like I'm going to pass out while at the same time I'm on the toilet. My doctor says that stress can also cause these out bursts-but I am newly promoted at my job and stress is unavoidable. (especially working full time in customer service!)
A little history:
Diagnosed with ADHD when I was 16
Diagnosed with Panick attack disorder when I was 19
Diagnosed with IBS within the last year
I am currently taking sertraline hcl 150 mg for my panick attacks, and I'm taking the occasional diphenoxylate-a tropine when I have sevear outbusts of IBS
I have a horrible time with this IBS. My doctor says I should walk daily for 30 minutes... I do this and still get sick-just less constipated in between. I tell him I have random gass-he says to stop chewing gum, and have no carbinated and caffinated drinks-I do this and I still get tons of random gass. He says to change my diet-I do this (Literatly living off of turkey sandwiches and chicken brests)-and now I get sick once a week vrs. the once a month I had before! He thinks it's because I hardley eat any veggies or fruit-but when I try to add these more into my diet-I get sicker quicker! This is rediculious!!! My boss see's me as unreliable since I get sick at random now... and I have even crapped my pants on numerious occasions too! This is unreal and I can't fathom living like this anymore.
I know diets are different for everybody with IBS-but some suggestions would be nice :) I feel like my panick attack meds aren't even working anymore either. I have literatley resorted to not allowing myself a full meal for the past 3 days to ensure I don't have enough in me to make me sick...! And I can't keep on takingdiphenoxyla-a tropine to stop things while I'm at work since the doctor won't give me a refill and it only makes things batter for a day. Any med recomendations would be awsome as well :) I can't see how anybody can work a full time jopb and be sick once a week too-is this even normal for IBS???
