Anxiety attacks/ IBD


I've been searching "anxiety attacks" on the Forum this morning. I am specifically wondering if having an IBD condition can make one more predisposed to anxiety attacks.

Hi hhpop,
The worrying about how to deal with IBD could be a trigger for an anxiety attack. I have had anxiety attacks, but have never had IBD. Mine have been more of a hormonal issue; it's seems when the hormones are raging, my anxiety increases, and anything can trigger one, any negative thought can become an obsessive one.
I have written about how I have dealt with them more naturally after having used meds in the past.
