Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both. IBS is a chronic condition that you'll need to manage long term.


Only a small number of people with IBS have severe signs and symptoms. Some people can control their symptoms by managing diet, lifestyle and stress. More-severe symptoms can be treated with medication and counseling.

If you have IBS, you may know that you have an increased risk of also having other diseases. In a large US study, researchers found that IBS patients have an increased risk of migraine (1.8 times as likely), fibromyalgia (4.5 times), depression (2 times), and anxiety (1.9 times).1 In addition, researchers now understand that both male and female IBS patients have an increased risk of a variety of urinary problems.

IBS can cause bouts of stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation.

The symptoms usually appear for the first time when a person is between 20 and 30 years of age.

They tend to come and go in bouts, often during times of stress or after eating certain foods.

Symptoms vary between individuals and affect some people more severely than others.
