Let’s put it plainly, Irritable Bowel Syndrome is no fun. IBS symptoms include diarrhea, pain, cramping, bloating, gas and constipation. Doesn’t sound like much fun at all does it? No, it can be an irritating and often embarrassing condition to have to deal with. Symptoms can occur for many reasons such as stress, medication, diet, or hormonal changes. It’s not a permanent condition and many have found relief just by lifestyle changes, medication and stress-management techniques. Unfortunately for women they are twice as likely as men to get IBS and many won’t even see a doctor about the issue. Around 10% of the population of the whole world are affected by IBS and you would be surprised to see some very familiar faces who are experiencing exactly what you are so don’t be distressed. Many celebrities today are battling or have battled with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
