Information on IBS

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a condition that commonly causes diarrhea, constipation, severe abdominal (stomach) cramping, and other symptoms. People who have IBS will have to deal with it their entire lives. Treatment typically involves lifestyle and dietary changes, and in some cases, medications.
 
When considering a diagnosis of IBS, your healthcare provider will ask for information on whether the pain or discomfort has occurred at least three times per month for the past three months. He or she will also ask about what the abdominal pain is associated with and what relieves it.
