Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is intestines (or bowels, or gut) that have become over sensitive. With IBS there is no disease, injury, obvious malformation or other easy-to-identify cause. The intestines are just irritated and not functioning smoothly, which is manifested by a variety of possible symptoms.

The most common complaints of IBS sufferers are bloating, abdominal pains (especially on the left side, and especially after eating), excess wind, diarrhoea or constipation (sometimes alternating between the two), difficulty with opening the bowel, feeling nausea when opening the bowels and frequent occasions of needing to go to the toilet with very short notice.

IBS seems to flare up when sufferers are undergoing other stress in their lives. Some people have worse symptoms in response to certain foods or drink, others will find that the IBS always flares up when another health problem (such as a rash or migraine) is present. A healthy diet and plenty of exercise are thought to help prevent IBS.

With medical treatment, IBS is sometimes curable, but other times the sufferer has to learn to live with the condition to some extent.

Well,Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is widely known as a group of different symptoms occurring at the same time, including discomfort or pain in the abdomen and some changes in the bowel movement patterns. IBS is called as a functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorder by many doctors and the GI disorders happen as your GI tract operates in an unusual and abnormal way without noticing any evidence of damage coming from diseases.

However, there are some natural remedies for this situation, see this article to know more: Home Remedies for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
