My name is Sophie Lee and I have had IBS since I was 12. I am the author of Sophie's Story: My 20-Year Battle with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I've run IBS Tales since 2003 and the site now contains over 600 personal stories from IBS sufferers and over 1000 reviews of IBS treatments.
IBS Tales has been featured in a wide range of publications including Ladies Home Journal in the USA and The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and Metro in the UK. It was described as a 'A fascinating and moving site for anyone with IBS, their relatives and doctors' in the book IBS: Answers At Your Fingertips by Dr Udi Shmueli (Gastroenterologist).
Stories and Reviews for IBS Tales
Please send in your story or review if you can - every single story can help other sufferers to feel less alone and find a treatment that works.
If you are sending in a personal IBS story...
Personal stories go in the Read the Tales section. I publish your email address alongside your story unless you ask me not to. This is so other IBS sufferers can contact you with support and advice.
If you are sending in a treatment review...
Treatment reviews go in the Treatment Reviews section. Please be specific about your symptoms and how the product has helped you or not helped you, along with any side effects or worries you have about it.
If you've used a treatment that is not currently featured on the site please send in your review anyway and I'll publish it on a new page. At the moment I'd loved to get reviews of Viberzi (eluxadoline) for IBS-D and the FODMAPs diet.
I DON'T OFFER ANY FORM OF MEDICAL ADVICE.
I am happy to talk about my experiences with IBS - just contact me using the form on this page.
