Support groups can be a great way to connect with others who are suffering from IBS. Interacting with those going through a similar experience can make you feel less alone. There may be the added benefit of learning what treament techniques are working or not working for some.

The easiest form of support group is an online support group such as IBS Group. If you’re looking for someone local you can check out the IBS Group forums for listings of meetings possibly happening in your area.
