IBS or irritable bowel syndrome is a condition categorized by a group of symptoms that occur together. These symptoms can range from repeated constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, changes in bowel habits and or bloating. These symptoms occur often with IBS and without visible signs of damage or disease in your digestive tract.
These symptoms can not only wreak havoc on your digestive system but can also impact your social life especially around the holidays. Family gatherings can leave you wondering if you will have an attack or will you even be able to make it.
