ABSTRACT
Stress is likely to influence symptoms in the irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). This article studies the effect of acute physical and psychological stressors on symptoms, visceral sensitivity and gut specific autonomic tone in healthy volunteers and patients with IBS. It was found that acute physical and psychological stress alters gut specific autonomic tone in both normal volunteers and IBS patients and is associated with an increase in visceral sensitivity in IBS only. Heightened sensitivity with similar autonomic tone suggests a mechanism for visceral sensation independent of autonomic nerves.
