IBS is a chronic inflammation of the colon due to severe infections or food intolerance causing histamine reaction. The main symptoms of IBS are:
1. Stomach pain or cramps – usually worse after eating and better after doing a poop.
2. Bloating – your tummy may feel uncomfortably full and swollen.
3. Diarrhea – you may have a watery poop and sometimes need to poop suddenly.
4. Constipation – you may strain when pooping and feel like you cannot empty your bowels fully.
IBS can also cause:
1. Farting (flatulence).
2. Passing mucus from your bottom.
3. Tiredness and a lack of energy.
4. Feeling sick (nausea).
6. Problems peeing, like needing to pee often, sudden urges to pee, and feeling like you cannot fully empty your bladder.
7. Not being always able to control when you poop.
Chronic IBS can even cause sudden loss of weight. Our bowels have folds, which pushes poop down. But inflammation smoothens these folds & thus, how hard you try, poop is not pushed out easily.
