When I was in high school, I developed IBS
very badly, in which I'd get an upset stomach every school morning (due to anxiety
), and this went on for years with it being triggered in various situations. Doctors always suggested a fiber supplement, which never worked. I was even on medication (antispasmodic) to try and help it, but it didn't really work.. As you can tell, anxiety was a big culprit of my problems.
Today, I'm the exact opposite. I suffer from severe constipation.
