Anxiety related: Hi, ibs is usually in anxious patients, you might be already prone to it. Polyp diagnosis has nothing to do with it. If you are type a personality, anxious person, you can get diarrhea, burning urine. Its like overactive gut, Dicyclomine helps. May be post diagnosis of polyp, you are worried about it and ibs got worse.
