Struggling to cope with digestive problems

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi, I was wondering wether anyone else had suffered any digestive problems with their anxiety, I'm going back to the doctors shortly as I've literally had enough! For the last 3 or 4 years I've had anxiety issues but this last 6 months has been the worst, and it's getting worse.

I can handle the brain fog just, aches and pains it's the digestive problems I can't control, find myself spending a lot of time at home as I don't want the risk of being caught out. I have coeliac disease or so they say I'm not convinced but anyway I follow a diary and gluten free diet without any problem, I'm just after some help with anything that I can do myself which you or someone you know has tried and is world

Thanks

    I just read an article that keeos talking about sweet potaoes and how they are great fo ibs but i have no clue if that means they can helo crohns. Im oretty sure it wiuld take a week ir so of eating them to find out. In terms of the anxiety  yes ptobably eveyone one of us had stomach issues..gerd, reflux or ibs. Adrenaline wrecks havoc in the the belly. Diet is a huge pat of heloing your stomach.

    having digestive problems is a common symptom with anxiety.  Have you ever heard the term "butterflies in my stomach" that is a figure of speech for nervousness, which essentially is anxiety.
