Along with food and drink, work also plays an important role in showing its symptoms.

Anxiety refers to a condition in which the brain is confused and has difficulty solving problems. Similarly, if the workload is high and there is anxiety that the work has to be completed on time. Even then, its symptoms may appear.

The explanation is that if you have to do something at a time but the given time is not enough to complete the task. If you do not complete the given task on time, you may be punished. In such a situation, you will be accompanied by an anxiety that will create symptoms.

Another example is if you are a student and you have to work or you have got an assignment and you are asked to submit it on time. But if for some reason you are not able to do so he will be worried about it.

It will become a symptom of IBS for you later. It only happens to people who are already suffering from IBS. Ordinary people are living a simple life and they are not suffering from IBS. When they face such a situation, they live with anxiety. They do not see the symptoms of IBS.[1]Impact of psychological stress on irritable bowel syndrome ( [2]The role of stress in symptom exacerbation among IBS patients – ScienceDirect

Could more work benefit IBS?

Yes, more work or being busy is beneficial in IBS if you do not have mental stress to complete the work.
If you are mentally relaxed and engaged in work, you will not even realize that you have IBS. Speed ​​up or slow down your digestive system.

And as a result, you will be more relaxed. You can benefit from more work only if you do not have any stress to complete it.

Would you use medicine for IBS symptoms because of overwork?

If you are eating the food that suits you and at the same time you are engaged in a task which you are pressured to complete on time then you may get symptoms of IBS. There is no need to take medicine because as soon as you finish the work you will be less stressed and the symptoms of IBS will burn automatically.

But on the other hand, if these symptoms are due to diet, then taking medicine can be read.
At this point, you have to think for yourself whether these symptoms are due to your work or due to poor diet in your diet. Depending on this you will use medicine or not.
