My doc said he believes my IBS is being caused by my anxiety/stress (I am on meds for anxiety/depression). He gave me a prescript
ion for Diphen/Atrop. I'm to take one a day for spastic pain.
I know that my mom having a broken ankle has put a lot more work on me and it can be stressful, but I was doing okay with it. It wasn't until my frequent bathroom runs that I started getting all worried and that was over the fear of being away from a bathroom! It's also an uncomfortable feeling. My depression and anxiety is worst in the early part of the day, but even though it lessens over the day, it's not until night that I feel halfway "normal" again!
He gave me a B-12 shot (his receptionist suggested it to me before he came in) at my request for my fatigue. I've been drinking water like it's going out of style cuz I'm thirsty, probably all the trips to the bathroom!
I wwish I had known about
the meds y'all suggested before I went...if I don't get better soon, I may ask him on my next visit.
Oh well, thanks for all your kind words of support!
