Stress and IBS

Posted on March 2, 2018

Stress can be a trigger for IBS symptoms, but it is also because of IBS symptoms we feel stress. It's a repetitive cycle sometimes! Stress is an intrusive part of life when living with IBS. Learning to manage stress and beat the IBS/stress cycle becomes paramount.

On myIBSteam, the social network and online support group for those living with IBS, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Stress is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about stress:

Does anyone else get palpitations that aren't associated with stress or anxiety?

I'm having a bad week with a lot of new symptoms is this normal?

Does anyone else feel tightness in their abdomen often?

Here are some conversations about stress:

Today the bloating is minimal, I am very grateful for that.

This past month has been hard. The doctor has tried different anxiety medication.

I've been trying to stay mindful of triggers and stress.
