Since october of last year, i have loose/watery stool. this was on and off for a few weeks. When these bouts happened, I would get intestinal cramping with the urgancy to use the bathroom once. Then it went away completely. I ended up seeing a dr and she did an exam and said my symptoms were not enough to conduct an xray or ct because it was only happening for one day then go away. She said maybe IBS but also could be my anxiety as i have it bad everyday.
in the last 6 months, i have had watery stool 3 times or so. cramping mild and always goes away after one movement, ive looked up ibs symptoms and they do not match me. for example, in january i had the sudden urge to use the bathroom with abdominal cramps and in an hour, it went away. Then i am completely normal for two months. Then last time I had a bout of watery stool was a month ago without cramps or pain, again went away.
my dr said, call when you are in constant pain and cant stop going to the bathroom.
is this IBS or just something from chronic anxiety? I find that if i relax more, the symptoms go away and the less i worry, the less it shows. My ex has ibs and he was always in constant pain for a long time. That is not what i am going through. I think the anxiety of maybe having it is worse than the actual symptoms.
