What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is now one of the most common problems of the digestive system: it is estimated that up to one in five people in the UK have occasional symptoms. It causes pain in the abdomen and an altered bowel habit. Although IBS poses no serious threat to health, it can have an adverse effect on a person’s quality of life.
Due to the pain, discomfort and embarrassment that are often associated with IBS, some people also experience feelings of anxiety and depression and they may be reluctant to leave their home for fear of the symptoms appearing.
There are different types of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), depending on your main symptom. It is known by a variety of other names, including spastic colon, spastic colitis, mucous colitis, nervous diarrhoea, nervous colon and nervous bowel. IBS is twice as common in women as it is in men. The condition normally develops in people who are between 20 and 30 years of age, but it can affect people of any age.
Common symptoms of IBS include:
• Pain or discomfort in the abdomen. The pain may be mild to severe, and may be made either better or worse by opening the bowels, passing wind or eating.
• Change in bowel habits – You may find that your bowel habit alternates between constipation and diarrhoea. Afterwards, you may feel that your bowels haven’t been completely emptied.
• Passing excess wind.
• Feeling sick.
• The passing of mucus from your back passage.
• Bloating of the abdomen.
• Experiencing an urgent need to go to the toilet, which can result in incontinence if a toilet is not nearby.

How you think and feel can have an important effect on your body. Psychological factors play a big role in triggering IBS and symptoms are almost always worse when you are under stress. When you are feeling stressed or depressed your body undergoes changes and these changes can affect how your digestive system works, making the symptoms of IBS worse.
