Those with IBS know that stress is often a trigger for their symptoms, making it difficult to navigate IBS and anxiety together as interacting conditions. The anxiety around having IBS symptoms can result in more IBS symptoms, as our guts respond to stress hormones that we release, such as cortisol and adrenaline. 

Having uncontrollable IBS symptoms can in turn create higher levels of anxiety, as we try to navigate day to day life around flare-ups, restrictive diets and worry about where the next bathroom is.
