    Long story about stomach/stool problems

    Hi all, About four months ago, I got extremely anxious (and still am to this day) and started experiencing gas, diarrhea, confiscation and stomach pain. After a while, I noticed maroon blood on my toilet paper after bowel movements. I went to my GP and they sent me to a gastroenterologist where they did an exam and found three internal hemorrhoids which they treated with rubber bands. Thankfully the bleeding stopped, but some days I still have constipation or diarrhea along with gas and slight stomach....

    I had all these symptoms for almost 3 years ( diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, bad smell, fatique) and I went to my new doctor snd he ordered 25 tests for me.

    IBS?

    I started my journey with what seems to be IBS. I’ve gotten all the test done from CAT scans to ultrasounds to blood work and even an endoscopy and they say my pain is stress related. I’m suffering from stomach pains and digestive issues. Some days I’m constipated and days like today I have diarrhea. I get very anxious extremely easily for everything and I don’t know how to calm myself. I’ve tried it all and it’s not helping. I’m losing so much weight because I’m scared to eat. And I have school....

  • Strange throat / chest tension

    Hi all, So I’ve had GERD for several years now and I’ve been noticing some intense chest / lower throat tension. (I’ve had my heart checked out and it’s okay) I’ve figured out that if I look straight up and breathe deep with my belly, (while sitting up straight) it feels like my diaphragm is pulling my throat / esophagus down, it’s a nice feeling. I have terrible posture so my chest / neck are tight usually, and I have anxiety. I’m just curious if anyone has any insight as to what else I’m stretching....
