When folks from the IBS community participated in our In America survey last year, a whopping 77% said that pain is a typically experienced symptom! What are some of the ways you manage IBS pain? For the month of September, we'll be talking about it during Pain Awareness Month. Send us your questions, share your story, or get feedback from each other in our forums below!
