What is IBS?
According to Mayo Clinic, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the stomach and intestines, also called the gastrointestinal tract.
● Stomach cramps
● Abdominal pain
● Diarrhea, constipation or both
● Changes in appearance of bowel movement and how frequent you experience bowel movement.
What triggers IBS is still not clear, but doctors point out that there are some factors that trigger the condition such as:
● Muscle contractions in the intestine. Slow and long contractions can lead to gas and bloating, diarrhea, inability to pass food passage.
● Poor coordination between the nervous system in the intestine and the brain may lead to inefficient digestive process which will result in pain, diarrhea and constipation.
● IBS can cause severe bacteria infection in the intestine resulting in diarrhea.
● People that were exposed to stressful events and trauma during childhood may lead to development of IBS.
● Changes in microbe in the intestine may affect people that suffer from IBS.
● Certain foods may trigger symptoms of IBS for some people like dairy products, citrus fruit, beans, vegetables, wheat, milk and carbonated drinks.
● When you are in stressful moments your IBS symptoms may be triggered.
When to see a doctor?
You should see a doctor if you are having irregular bowel movements and if you are experiencing symptoms of IBS. Be on alert if you are loosing weight, having diarrhea at night, rectal bleeding, unexplainable vomiting and when pain is relief after passing gas or bowel movements then go see a doctor as soon as possible.

Genes and genetics do play a role in having IBS too.
