I haven't posted on this board in quite a while because the environment became so negative, but occasionally I will check the forums in hopes of learning something new. I'm glad I found this thread!

Like those of you who posted, I am also extremely sensitive in all aspects of my life. I am an artist who notices little details others don't. I am extremely self-critical and hypersensitive to being judged by others. I pick up on others moods; I blame myself when people don't call me back or respond to my emails. I take to heart every bad thing that happens in my personal life or in the lives of people I care about. I have to dress for comfort - I hate clothes that are too tight, not just on my waistband, but even tightness around my legs in the form of stalkings or jeans. I've completely given up underwire bras for soft, light sports bras. I won't wear any shoes with a heel and I can't stand it when my hair touches my face.

I am also sensitive to fluctuations in temperature. I wear long pants and sleeves in the summer, tending toward the cold side, but I overheat quickly and feel terrible when I do. Changes in my blood sugar affect my mood and physical well being dramatically. I have perpetual knots in my neck and shoulders that cause frequent tension headaches.

I hate being in large crowds because I get overwhelmed easily, and I absolutely HAVE to have daily alone time. If I don't, I completely unravel.

So yeah, you could say I am sensitive. And I am absolutely sure that my IBS is related to all this.

A few things have helped me cope with my overall sensitivity. One is taking daily magnesium at bedtime. Another is acupuncture. And finally, therapy has helped me develop strategies to deal with my emotional sensitivity.

I am interested to know what percentage of IBSers fit into this type of profile and what that says about the cause of IBS.
