    Hello,
    Chronic constipation and excessive diarrhea can cause hemorrhoids. Additionally, it can be associated with the following:

    – Poor quality of life. Many people with moderate to severe IBS report poor quality of life. Research indicates 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 lead to depression or anxiety. Depression and anxiety also can make IBS worse.
