In the long run, IBS could cause some complications, including:
  • Hemorrhoids.
  • Poor quality of life.
Many people with moderate to severe IBS lead a poor-quality life. Research shows that people with IBS miss three times as many days from work as do those without bowel symptoms.
  • Mood disorders.
Experiencing the signs and symptoms of IBS can cause depression or anxiety. Depression and anxiety also can make IBS worse.   Keywords: IBS complications; complications IBS.
