Well Irritable Bowel Syndrome is really nota disease in itself its a description of multiple symptoms that when put together are a syndromethat are often will cause symptoms in both men, women, and children. It is very commonbut thankfully life threatening in anyway. The symptoms can be varied but the most commonones would include things like bloating, distension, abdominal pain, alternating both diarrheaand constipation. These symptoms could be very concerning for patients and can reallylimit their life style but once again its really not life threatening. It's a descriptionof really the neural impulses that colon in particular is receiving and if you think ofit as almost like a fray ends of an electrical
wire there is increased amounts of impulsesthat are irritation the colon and the colon walls and the muscular track and is believedto cause spasm and often that's what creates the sensation of bloating, gas, and abdominalpain. IBS is a life long syndrome and not a life threatening syndrome and patients typicallywill have symptoms that come and go and sometimes exacerbated by types of stress or emotionalchanges. Thank you for choosing Saint Peter's.
