Hello,My name is Eleanor Bennett and I’m conducting research on the experience of using online support groups for chronic illness, and I’d like to invite anyone reading this IBS forum to take part. To date there has been very little research detailing the journey people take from initially joining a health forum to becoming an established member and beyond, and I’m hoping this research will help bridge that gap.If you would like to take part, then have a look at the survey here https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/OSG1Also as a thank you for your time you can choose to be entered into a prize draw to win £50 (or US $80) of Amazon Vouchers.If you have any queries or would like a copy of the FAQ then do please message or Email meThank You :)Please note that this research has been given ethical approval by the University of Nottingham UK and is supervised by Dr Neil Coulson, a leading researcher in the use of the internet in people dealing with health issues.

Ive participated and hope to help the medical profession and other patients understand IBS a little more.Good luckJohn
Diagnosed originally with microscopic colitis in 1992 but no inflammation detected on subsequent colonoscopies,so IBS diagnosed. Hoping to share my personal opinions and experiences to help others and become more aware myself. No medical training at all.
