About Irritable Bowel Syndrome
It can be difficult to determine the cause of the common functional gastrointestinal disorder known as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
But we do know that, while the condition is physical, stress and other emotional factors can exacerbate symptoms.
Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome can include:
- abdominal (stomach) pain and cramping, which may be relieved by moving your bowels.
- a change in your bowel movements, like such as diarrhea, constipation or both.
- bloating and swelling
- excessive flatulence
- occasionally experiencing an urgent need to use the bathroom.
When you visit our functional medicine clinics, a Forum Health IBS doctor will examine your health and medical history and work to relieve your symptoms like gas, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation.
