My name is Claire and I’m a 43-year-old editor who has recently been diagnosed with IBS. Over a short amount of time I’ve come across a huge amount of information on the internet that has left me more confused than ever and afraid that I am going to be living with the loud grumblings of my tummy for the rest of my life. Since IBS supposedly afflicts a massive one in five people, I’m sure there are many more of you out there who are feeling the same despair as me.
