What is IBS?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a condition where people experience stomach sensitivity, discomfort and pain, which is often accompanied by diarrhoea, constipation and bloating.

 

The cause of IBS is unfortunately still not clear, however it is thought that it may be due to gut over-activity and that intense emotional feelings such as stress and anxiety can be a trigger. Many people also find that a number of certain foods will trigger IBS.

If you are living with IBS, you are probably battling with pain and unpleasant symptoms on a daily basis. It may be that your confidence is being affected and you get less enjoyment out things that you used to enjoy doing. You may also notice that you have increased feelings of anxiety and low mood and are even avoiding social situations.
