A number of symptoms that occur together characterize irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). While there is no cure for IBS, symptoms may be long term or come and go overtime. People with IBS may experience symptoms concurrently (at the same time) and some may be worse then others.
The changes may seem random. But there is a pattern to symptoms of IBS.
An accurate diagnosis from your clinician is the starting point for appropriate treatment.
If you have symptoms, talk to your doctor. Don’t self-diagnose.
