Irritable Bowel Syndrome
The precise cause of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is unknown, but the muscles of the bowel appear to be very sensitive to things like stress, eating and drinking habits, food allergies or intolerances, stimulants such as tea and coffee and hormonal factors. Such things can trigger painful abdominal cramps or spasms if you have a sensitive bowel. you may also feel bloated, with excess wind and abdominal discomfort. Sometimes IBS can include diarrhoea or constipation.
