Got gut problems? It might be irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Take our quick self test quiz to see if you could have IBS, assess whether your symptoms are affecting your quality of life, and get a free evaluation based on your responses.
Irritable bowel syndrome affects 1 in 5 people, with symptoms including abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation. IBS is a ‘syndrome’ meaning a collection of symptoms which can flare-up for various lengths of time and last for years.
Without a known cause, Irritable Bowel Syndrome is diagnosed by medical professionals with a test called the Rome Criteria, a set of questions designed to identify IBS symptoms (abdominal pain, constipation and diarrhea), changes in bowel movements and distinguish it from other conditions like IBD. While our IBS quiz cannot diagnose IBS (and isn't medically reviewed) it can help you assess if your symptoms are similar to that of IBS and whether these symptoms are affecting your quality of life.
