    Fight or flight response - because it's not helpful to run away (or fight) with a full bladder and colon....

    The body is a magnificent machine..

    Re: A panic attack before I use the bathroom?

    The exact same thing has been happening to me for the past 2-3 years. It used to happen only occasionally, now it's every time I need to go. It is making my life miserable because I fear going places and doing things for when it happens. I hace even had to start taking propanolol because my heart rate would go up to 165bpm. Trying to find a reason for it and solutions but up to now no luck. If I find anything oit I'll come back to report.

    I have a panic attack after Hub's has used the bathroom..

    My sensitive system can't cope with that kind of smell.
