Anxiety & IBS

By March 11, 2007

Scientific links continue to emerge between anxiety and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which is disruption to the digestive system that can take a variety of forms. A recent study has shown that people with stress, anxiety, and depression were more likely to develop IBS, which affects more women than men. For people with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), physical symptoms often accompany anxiety and worry, including digestive problems that may be IBS. Getting treatment for GAD can often lead to some relief from these digestive problems as well.
