IBS is another one of those syndromes I’ve been plagued with for most of my life…even as a child and adolescent. Research and doctors tell me that IBS cluster with a lot of the other syndromes and disorders I have…like fibromyalgia.
If you deal with this aliment you know how fickled a companion it can be and how miserable it can make your life. It can put you flat on your back and just over all make you feel like crud and take the fun out of life.
Yes, depression and anxiety can and does go along with IBS, but according to this latest research there is an organic brain-gut relationship in this syndrome. So, folks, what that mean is…it’s not just “all in your head” but is truly related to you head, or brain function if you will. As I’m known to tell doctors, “I knew I wasn’t crazy!”
