Absolutely, just had that discussion with my specialist. He said to avoid stress and anxiety. I take Xanax and he told me to up the dose slightly if under more stress. I know I have had IBS for years and anxiety made me very sick more than once. I am going to try to eat better, lose some weight and avoid the stress and see how much it helps me!
