People Living with IBS – survey

Are you or anyone you know living with IBS?

I’m conducting a survey into adults (18+ years of age) who are living with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) from anywhere in the world.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common digestive disorder characterised by irregular and often unpredictable bowel movements, sometimes with discomfort and pain. It does not always respond well to treatments and as such people living with it tend to try both conventional medicine and complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM), such as special diets, teas, massage therapy and much more. We are conducting this survey to help establish;

  • How many people with IBS use conventional treatments, CAM treatments, or a combination of both.
  • What people have tried in past and stopped using.
  • Peoples attitudes towards some psychological therapies for IBS.
  • People with IBS’s experience of symptoms during the Covid-19 pandemic, was everything the same, did symptoms change, and any thoughts they may have about this.


If you can spare 5-15 minutes to go through the survey, share it on any friends, family appropriate groups you may be part of that would be much appreciated.

Many thanks!
