I went to school for psychology & I also have irritable bowl syndrome so i know what you are going through. but as I learned in school that when we have stress either instant or ongoing there is a chemical released in our brain that runs through our blood..kinda like the fight or flight syndrome when your body must acted in a dangerous situation, in turn creates our muscles to cramp (to be ready to run or protect ourselves or body) and, blood vessels will tighten, muscles will move in an abnormal way than it should at that moment. Sometimes if you stay stressed so will your stomach. The chemicals in the brain can work on stress in different ways for different people. Like someone may get an extreme headache or throw up. So hope that helped if you have anymore questions just ask. I deal with this daily esp now my stress is worse and sometimes we just have to trick our minds & repeat everythings ok..at least in that moment.
