Choose Text Size: Small - Medium - Large

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a condition which causes the intestines (or bowels, or gut) to be over sensitive. It is a condition marked by diarrhea, constipation and abdominal pain, and is caused by excessive contractions of the large intestine.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common digestive disorder which can cause troublesome and persistent symptoms. These vary greatly from person to person, but usually include cramping discomfort, a feeling of fullness or bloating, and a change or disruption of bowel habit. This can range from constipation (difficult or infrequent passage of a motion) to diarrhea (frequent or loose motions and an urgent need to go), or can alternate between the two.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is not considered a disease as such because there are no organic abnormalities or physical changes. In many people, however, stress or feelings of anxiety, guilt or resentment seem to trigger the symptoms, It is probably the most common abdominal complaint brought to the attention of doctors, affecting one-third to one-half of all patients who seek relief from gastrointestinal problems. ::
