Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine (colon). Irritable bowel syndrome can cause embarrassment and interrupt your lifestyle due to the symptoms that can come without warning, such as, excess gas and flatulence, diarrhea, constipation, pain in the lower belly, and mucus in the stools. These symptoms can vary widely in each person and the changes in bowel movement patterns can occur quickly and with no warning. The diagnosis of IBS with (IBS-C) is made if the above symptoms have lasted at least 6 months, you have pain in the belly at least 3 days each month for 3 months and at a minimum the pain meets 2 of the following:
Some people think that since there are no structural problems in the intestines of people who have IBS-C, that the symptoms "are all in their head". The exact cause of Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) isn't known. However, most medical experts believe that the communication between the brain and the intestinal tract is not working correctly, short circuited, in other words. This faulty communication can cause abnormal muscle contractions or spasms in the intestinal tract often causing cramping or pain. These spasms can cause diarrhea by speeding up the passage of stool, or in the case of IBS with Constipation, cause the passage of stool to slow down resulting in constipation. Research has also shown that if you have a family member with IBS-C, you have a higher chance of developing IBS.
IBS with Constipation has some of the same symptoms as chronic constipation:
IBS with Constipation can be exacerbated by periods of high stress and anxiety, bouts of depression and changes in hormones, such as during a menstrual cycle and eating, though no particular food has been linked with IBS-C.
There are treatments available to help with IBS-C. Not all treatments work for all people.
