Dear Dr. Vikas,
I will sometimes need to empty out shortly after eating, usually it's after breakfast or dinner. In regard to IBS, I don't believe that's an issue and rarely geyt constipated or diarrehea. Have not had any surgery other than having my tonsils out at age 5. The anxiety may be a possible issue, but what about the other symptoms connected with food and eating? I will also often begin a rapid heartbeat or heavier breathing maybe about an hour or two after eating breakfast or lunch. Sometimes even drinking a glass of water this symptom will occur. Can all of this be related to anxiety? I don't particlurly feel anxious, but can get somewhat stressed watching the news/politics on TV, my favorite sports team losing, or a domestic argument (which hasn't occurred in months). My mother who passed away 10 years ago, did have anxiety and was on medication. She hated to be idle and was always on the go or visiting with friends, etc.
