Sounds like a spasm of the bowel brought on by anxiety? Have you been on an ssri or benzo even if only for a trial??? A beta blocker might help as well. Alankay

I take nortriptoline (I think that's the name of it), due to that very reason. I take one dose at night and it has helped me. It reduces the function of the nerves in the gut when you get anxious. I was what the dr called a "gut responder". Because I would have anxiety wherever I would go because I would always have to know where the bathrooms were,etc... I would take immodium all the time also.
