Does anyone have any tips for controlling IBS caused by my anxiety? I get the feeling to go to the toilet all the time when I leave the house. Any ways to help?

Sorry I'm not too sure I can help you as I don't know too much about Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Do you wear pads? That way you could pee into them, and simply go to public toilets knowing there's no pee stain / marks and change it.

Additonally, if your feeling anxious / paranoid, tie your jacket around your waist so no one can see if you needed to go to the toilet.

I also suffer from IBS casued by anxiety. Are you currently in school? Peppermint oil tablets have been helpful for me, they help to regulate bowel movements.

I have the exact same problem and my symptoms are also caused by anxiety and stress, I have Stress induced IBS. I have really bad gas and I have to hold it in because I'm scared of knocking everyone out lol! I also have cramps and bloating. I went to the doctor today and she prescribed buscopan (for cramps) and peppermint oil capsules for flatulence. Although its only been a few hours, it seems to be helping

Also I don't know if it's just me but isn't the school environment the worst for IBS?! It's a nightmare holding in farts and trying to tell if you farted or not. People are so judgemental which doesn't help and you're so paranoid and in so much pain
