The FDA has recently approved the first device to relive IBS-pain for 11-18 year olds. The device is called IB-STIM, designed to stimulate areas of the brain with gentle electrical impulses and thus regulate certain aspects of pain sensation. If you're a young IBS-sufferer or have kids in the age range 11-18 you can get this in the USA.
I would recommend to read up on how it works, which contraindications are present and consult a competent professional if this is something you would like to try. Hope this is of interest to someone out there, take care!
