Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common long-term condition that affects your large intestine (colon). When you have IBS, your colon does not work the way it should. It causes your stomach to easily react to certain foods or stress stimuli with cramps, bloating, gas, or changes in your bowel habits, such as constipation or diarrhea. IBS may come and go.
Each person’s symptoms may vary. Some of the most common IBS symptoms include:
- A bloated feeling
- Bowel changes:
- Painful constipation or diarrhea
- Going back and forth between having constipation and having diarrhea
- Having mucus in your stool
- Change in the appearance of your stool
- Pain or cramping in your belly
