Symptoms in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Symptoms in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

We are looking for individuals who have a diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and who also experience anxiety and/or depression. Participating in this study will involve completing an online survey. By completing this survey, you will help us understand about symptoms that individuals with IBS experience. This survey is completely online. It should take you 5-15 minutes to complete the questions. The survey will ask questions about your mental and physical health and demographic information. All responses will be kept confidential. You may have the option of participating in a second part of the study which would involve an interview about the symptoms you experience, previous experiences with managing your symptoms, and providing feedback on an intervention.

Participant Eligibility

– ages 18-70 years old

– experience anxiety and/or depression

Exclusion criteria:
