Living with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is not easy and that’s exactly what any person with this condition will tell you.
This condition is also known as mucous colitis, spastic colon, spastic constipation and variations of these, but IBS is the preferred term these days.
Naturally, symptoms vary depending upon the person. However, even just having one of the following symptoms is likely to be at the least annoying and at worst, disabling.
The most common symptoms are:
- Abdominal pain
- Anxiety and/or depression
- Erratic bowel movements or diarrhea
- Headache, fatigue, and/or impaired concentration
- Nausea or weight loss
