Re: Stress and ibs c

Hi, you sound like you're having a difficult time. It might be worth considering a talking therapy. This might help you with your anxiety, and also with making behavioural changes that might improve your diet and how you manage stress. A talking therapy can also help with pain management. To access ...

Re: IBS

Hi, As you've used IBS as your subject then I'm assuming you have already had a diagnosis of IBS from your GP? If you haven't, then please do speak to your GP. If you have, then yes eating a bigger meal than normal, particularly if it is rich, which meals in restaurants often are, can cause difficul...

Re: Sudden and urgent need to go after eating

Hi. You said that you've been to your GP many times, what have they advised? I wondered if they had suggested it was IBS or if they are still ruling out other issues? It's good that you are starting to notice when it is happening. It might be important to do this by keeping a diary and then you can ...

Re: I,b.s.

Hi. That all sounds very difficult, particularly if you don't feel that you can socialise because of the problem. Have you tried a talking therapy? IBS can often be related to stress/nerves/emotional difficulties which a talking therapy might be able to help with. The IBS is now having a significant...

Re: Bleeding and variable stools

Hi. Have you been back to speak to your GP recently about this issue? I agree that no patient should feel 'forced' to have medical treatment, however it might be important to have a conversation with your GP about your difficulties, and their suggestions for investigation/treatment. If you don't wan...

Re: Poo leaks!

Hi. While it will be important for your GP to rule out any physical health difficulties, it may also be psychological. Is your son putting off going to the toilet? Is he ignoring the sensation that he needs to go because he would rather be doing something else, or because it's become quite distressi...

Re: Constipation & migraines

Hi. I recommend that you keep a diary so that you can start to identify what the triggers are to your migraines and to your constipation. You could keep track of what you've eaten, drunk and how much exercise you've had, and anything that could be stressful/difficult in your life, as well as your bo...

Re: Constipation with ibs

There can often be a psychological aspect to IBS, where psychological distress, i.e. stress or anxiety, can manifest as a physical symptom in the body. It might be helpful to consider whether you can make any changes in your life that could benefit your psychological and emotional health. There are ...
