I had food poisoning about 20 years ago. I've seen a naturopathic doctor who treated me for parasites, it helped tremendously. The problem I'm still having is whenever I'm not near a bathroom I'll have severe panic attacks & bowel urgency so bad that I avoid any situations like this. Wondering if anyone has dealt with this and knows of any suggestions on how to overcome this fear? It's deeply affected my life in a very negative way.

Hi, as Mazz has suggested, working with a psychologist could be very helpful. Also EMDR is a great form of therapy to help you get over fears and panic in certain situations. If you haven't heard of it and want to know more i am happy to explain it. It sounds like you need some help with building confidence, have you ever spoken to anyone about your concerns?

So many commonalities amungst us in this forum. But thats good and not unusual because we all have anxiety to one extreme or another that we can chat about.
