Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is extremely common, yet many people would rather not disclose that they have it. This chronic gastrointestinal condition affects the large intestine, causing discomfort in the abdominal region and a variety of digestive issues.
Normally, the intestinal walls contract and relax in a manner that is comfortable for a person. Abnormally weak or intense contractions can lead to IBS. Irritable bowel syndrome can also be caused by abnormalities in the nervous system, a surplus of bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, extreme stress, or other changes in the gut microbiome.
The symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome vary in type and intensity. These symptoms typically persist for a long time until proper treatment is determined. The most common symptoms associated with IBS are cramping, bloating, or abdominal pain related to a bowel movement.
IBS can cause diarrhea, constipation, or excessive gas. Bowel movements related to IBS may also be abnormal in appearance. The symptoms of IBS can be painful, enduring, and embarrassing.
Irritable bowel syndrome is a chronic disease with generally mild symptoms. However, those symptoms can be persistent and often need to be managed long-term. Untreated IBS symptoms may result in chronic diarrhea or constipation as well as hemorrhoids. Some patients with moderate or severe irritable bowel syndrome report a lower quality of life, depression, or anxiety, which can make the symptoms worse.
