I'm new to these forums but have been a member of IBS forums for a long time.
I have suffered with what is diagnosed as IBS for around 7 years.
I resonantly started a FODMAP diet which includes part of a gluten free diet and is the first time I have actually seen a bit of improvement.
I did a liver test at home a month ago which indicated I had elevated bilirubin at quite a high level (normal, +, ++, +++) and I sat between ++ & +++, Urobilinogen was elevated too. This test probably means nothing but I have read a lot of doctors who see elevated bilirubin and use it as a good indicator of celiac disease..
Until the FODMAP diet I was always soft small BM's, I now see normal BM's on some days.
I guess my question lies within my main trigger/symptom(s):
But I really want to ask - My biggest issue is when I have big stresses such as :
Leaving the house,
Having somebody come over,
Waiting for postman with parcel,
Waiting for an answer to a question that might define something important etc (like emailing the boss, is my absence gonna get me fired..)..
I will have strong urges to use the toilet, even if I don't really need to go (usually the first visit, I do)
These urges only go away when I have had the event pass by usually.
Did anyone else before going full Celiac diet have this problem?
