I have alot of anxiety which began a few months back and started having stomach aches and bathroom urges with loose stools/diarrhea. I've had colonoscopy, upper endoscopy, barium swallow xrays, stool cultures, CT scan of pelvis, gyno exam, endometrial biopsy, ultrasound of abdomen, ultrasound of pelvis, tons of bloodwork, all normal. Still having the stomach gurgles, bathroom races and weird loose stools. My doctor and I agree that I do have anxiety/panic disorder and he thinks this has brought on the IBS. Two odd parts are that I wake up in the morning and before I can even get out of bed I start to panic and this causes me to have to go to the bathroom. Other thing is that I have lost almost 25 pounds which I guess IBS doesn't usually make that happen. Is it plausible that I've lost weight from being anxious and actually do have IBS? What do you all think???
Thanks for any input!
