I have been dealing anxiety/IBS since Jr/High. It disappeared during HS but came back in college and has been there ever since. I have always managed but now it is so much worse. I know I have had a lot of major family stressors the past 3-4 years and currently work. I wonder if they are mounting the problem. Anyhow it affects my family bad. I don't want to go out and when I do I'm in the Bathroom at some point. I have been to the Gastro Doc and have been diagnose with Colitis and Chrohn's nine year's ago. During that time I was taking 11 pills a day and had corrective fistula surgery. I quit going and taking the meds. I just got sick of it becasue they did help. I went back this year and went throuh the scopes and Barium MRI and nothing was found. My problems are worse now and he thinks is is caused by anxiety. I have tried different meds for anxiety (paxil, zoloft, Elavil, and Buspar) With no real help. I go the Psych in 10 days for evaluation. Also reading books and ordered thte basset program. Thinking about counseling as well. Can anybody relate or provide advice on meds?
