What is IBS?

hotspotEveryone has digestive problems at some time in their life, but if you are experiencing any of the symptoms below on a regular basis there is a chance you may be suffering from IBS.

  • Chronic diarrhoea and/or constipation.
  • Frequent and often severe bouts of abdominal pain and cramps.
  • Bloating and swelling of the stomach.
  • Excessive wind.
  • An urgent need to go to the toilet, even if you have just been.

If you are experiencing any of the above on a regular basis and, if you have not already done so, it is important that you consult your GP to rule out any underlying medical conditions.
