IBS and anxiety are my main TMS symptoms and they are both acting up at the moment, triggered by painful surgery in June on the sole of my foot. The wound became infected and I was put on a course of antibiotics, which my gut doesn't like at the best of times and this time it has let me know in no uncertain terms. The wound is proving very slow to heal (which is often the case with feet and lower limb wounds) so aside from twice weekly taxi trips to the GP surgery to get the dressing changed I am confined to the house and unable to avail myself of my usual anti-TMS therapy of exercise, and more specifically walking in the country. I'm also unable to get into town and do normal everyday things. I live alone so I am feeling particularly isolated. I know this is temporary, the wound is healing - I've been told it should take another 6 weeks to 2 months - but the IBS symptoms (bloating, gas, the runs, cramps) and my general physical state is sending my anxiety levels soaring. I suppose I'm posting this in order to feel a little less isolated and to find out if anyone else has experienced anything similar and how they coped. I think I'll read some Claire Weekes today!
