    When we were animals and we needed to run away, fast, we had to empty ourselves to become lighter and thus run faster. Nerves or fear still kick us into 'flight' mode so we still get these instincts.

    Yeh thats what i got told at CBT and like some others have said thats normal, i dont think IBS is right in this context as its only with nerves not other times.

    I know like getting it over going somewhere new isnt normal (am taking anti anxiety meds and working on these areas) but like for exams/big job interviews? Then to be fine when youve got there and doing it (though obviously still somewhat nervous) and completely unstressed afterwards?
    I suppose it could be normal but I don't know. I'm just comparing it to me and everyone else I know who don't get it at all. But then I suppose some people throw up instead.

    My IBS is caused by nerves, food/drink, changes in the weather etc.

    Really is it normal, like have you had it before other than that time? I know mines worse cos i have panic attacks for things not as nerve wracking as they should be but i though the actual whole 'dodgy stomach' thing was abnormal.
    If you normally have panic attacks for nerve-wracking things, it may cause you to have an upset stomach. I'm no doctor/psychologist (yet.. :ninja:) but everyone knows nerves affect people in different ways. Maybe try not to think about it too much, and just be focused on what you're doing - changing your mindset might help you physically!
