Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Brain Connection (article) … l-20100722

LA Times article about McGill University/UCLA study that found brain differences in women with Irritable Bowel Syndrome compared to women who did not have IBS, suggesting that this supports “the concept of a brain-gut disorder.”

Article mentions a list of other disorders, including migraine, that are similar to IBS in the brain’s inability to inhibit the pain response.

I posted this because there have been discussions here about how many migraineurs also suffer from gut problems, especially IBS.
