I have experienced today difficulty in breathing, headache, slightly sweating, and yellow stool with undigested food. I have been under a lot of stress due to work and studies. Now my headache is gone, my bp is 127/76 heart rate 73. Tummy is a bit bloated and still stool isnt that great. Can all this be due to stress? Or it is a serious medical problem?

I work 4 days a week 6 am till 4 pm. I sleep around 5 hours a day since i am loaded with university work as well

OK.

Do you usually have problems with loose stools with your IBS?

Are you having any trouble with breathing now?

My ibs usually is under control, now i do not have any issue. Normal breathing, no sweating. I just feel very exhausted

OK.

It certainly sounds as if you are under a lot of stress.

Everything you mention could be a result of increased stress and anxiety, and the fact that you are 30 years old -- makes a serious medical issue unlikely.

You have a normal blood pressure, your pulse is normal, and you are feeling better at the moment. Which makes it very likely that this was an isolated episode that was probably related to a stressful event.

Of course, if loose stools continue, then perhaps IBS or another issue could be at fault. But if it was just a one time thing, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Best of luck.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
