Abdominal pain during remission: Investigating the views of people with Crohn’s or Colitis

Researchers at King’s College London would like to interview individuals of 18 years and older who continue to experience pain during remission and have been told by their clinicians that they also might have irritable bowel syndrome.

A large proportion of people with Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis report abdominal pain when the disease is in remission (i.e. when there is no obvious active disease and the flare has settled). We want to get a better understanding of how people with Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis experience and view abdominal pain during remission. Additionally, we would like to hear your views and understanding of irritable bowel syndrome.

We are also interested in hearing stories and experiences from people who are not in remission.
