Good Morning and Welcome to HealingWell. I would return to your physician to find out what is going on with the IBS. We do have an IBS Forum too so please read through that forum. Stress is a factor in IBS.
Because doctors have been unable to find an organic cause, IBS often has been thought to be caused by emotional conflict or stress. While stress may worsen IBS symptoms, research suggests that other factors also are important. Researchers have found that the colon muscle of a person with IBS begins to spasm after only mild stimulation. The person with IBS seems to have a colon that is more sensitive and reactive than usual, so it responds strongly to stimuli that would not bother most people.
Ordinary events such as eating and distention from gas or other material in the colon can cause the colon to overreact in the person with IBS. Certain medicines and foods may trigger spasms in some people. Sometimes the spasm delays the passage of stool, leading to constipation. Chocolate, milk products, or large amounts of alcohol are frequent offenders.
We also have a great forum on anxiety and if you post there you will find many helpful ideas on how to deal with the Anxiety and ways to reduce stress.
