My name is Christina and I am a sufferer of IBS-C and"shy bowel." I've suffered from both of these for so long because none of the doctors know how to help me. In fact, over 50% of us with IBS don't find the suggestions by our doctors very helpful.
Therefore, I am trying to gather research on this "shy bowel" problem and I am hoping you will take just 5 minutes of your time to complete my survey. Thank you so much from all of your fellow problem poopers!
