Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder of the intestines that may lead to cramping, gassiness, bloating, and changes in bowel habits. Some people with IBS have constipation, others have diarrhea and some people experience both. Sometimes individuals with IBS have the urge to move the bowels but cannot do so.
As opposed to other intestinal conditions, such as Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis, IBS does not cause inflammation of the intestines or permanent damage. Managing diet and limiting stress can control most of the symptoms caused by IBS
