Symptoms of IBS

Some patients experience increased emotional stress due to the unpredictability of symptoms and their causes, and the urgent need to use the restroom. Not knowing whether you’ll feel well or unwell based on what you may have eaten makes planning normal activities challenging.

Why Get Treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Each patient living with irritable bowel syndrome experiences different symptoms and levels of severity. Symptoms can be crampy abdominal pain, often associated with either diarrhea or constipation. Symptoms often worsen after a meal. Many people with irritable bowel syndrome find relief from avoiding certain foods or increasing exercise. However, every IBS patient suffers differently, and treatment may not be as simple as avoiding their favorite food.
