Three Most Common Symptoms of IBS

Certainly, there are many symptoms, but these are three of the biggest

Constipation

Constipation is a condition in which bowel movements are infrequent, defined as fewer than three times a week. Stools are usually small, hard, and difficult to pass. Related symptoms are straining, bloating, and the feeling of incomplete evacuation.

Abdominal Pain

Abdominal pain is a defining symptom of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and if you are experiencing this severe stomach pain, you certainly will be looking for some relief. It is not yet clear what causes this pain, known as visceral hypersensitivity, although research is being done regarding the role of inflammation and the brain-gut connection.

Diarrhea

Diarrhea describes bowel movements (stools) that are loose and watery. It is very common and usually not serious. Many people will have diarrhea once or twice each year. It typically lasts two to three days and can be treated with over-the-counter (OTC) medicines. Some people often have diarrhea as part of irritable bowel syndrome or other chronic diseases of the large intestine.
