    Stress, Anxiety and IBS. They are all linked. You dont have to have food itolerances to have IBS. My IBS was kick started after a diffiicult point in my life and that was all due to anxiety. I can eat whatever i want. But if im nervous or stressed my IBS starts. It doesn't help when you have health anxiety as you notice things alot more if your body changes and you worry about it. But its entirely possible that your bowels have reacted to your anxieties and in months to come the pattern may stay the same or go away. Just try not to worry aout it as it is harmless.
