Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that may affect over 15 percent of the general population. It is sometimes referred to as spastic colon, spastic colitis, mucous colitis or nervous stomach. IBS should not be confused with other diseases of the bowel such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease. IBS is a functional disorder where the function of the bowels may be abnormal but no structural abnormalities exist.

IBS is the disorder of function, which means that the bowel doesn't work, as it should. If one visualizes the bowel, it appears perfectly normal without any inflammation or other structural changes. In people with IBS, the intestines squeeze too hard or not hard enough and cause food to move too quickly or too slowly through the intestines

Causes of IBS

IBS is believed to be due to the abnormal function (dysfunction) of the muscles of the organs of the gastrointestinal tract or the nerves controlling the organs. The nervous control of the gastrointestinal tract, however, is complex. A system of nerves runs the entire length of the gastrointestinal tract from the esophagus to the anus in the muscular walls of the organs. These nerves communicate with other nerves that travel to and from the spinal cord. Nerves within the spinal cord, in turn, travel to and from the brain. Symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome may worsen during periods of stress or menses, but these factors are unlikely to be the cause that leads to development of IBS

Symptoms of IBS

Irritable bowel syndrome affects each person differently. The hallmark of IBS is abdominal discomfort or pain. The following symptoms are also common

  • Abdominal cramping and pain that are relieved after bowel movements
  • Alternating periods of diarrhea and constipation
  • Change in the stool frequency or consistency
  • Gassiness (flatulence)
  • Passing mucus from the rectum
  • Bloating
  • Abdominal distension

The following are not symptoms or characteristics of IBS

  • Blood in stools or urine
  • Vomiting (rare, though may occasionally accompany nausea)
  • Pain or diarrhea that interrupts sleep
  • Fever
  • Weight loss

Nature of condition

Almost everything about IBS is totally dependent on the individual patient. For some, IBS may arise during times of stress or crisis, and then subside once the stressful event has passed. For others, IBS strikes seemingly randomly and without warning and never completely goes away. The duration of IBS is different for everybody. The symptoms may wax and wane, being particularly severe at some times and absent at others.
To sum up, this is a chronic relapsing condition.

IBS and Stress

The key point is that IBS is strongly related to emotional stress and strain. Research on the psychosocial aspects of these disorders has yielded three general observations

  1. Psychological stress exacerbates gastrointestinal symptoms
  2. Psychological disturbances amplify illness experience and adversely affect health status
  3. Having a functional GI disorder like IBS impairs the quality of one�s life

Can ibs lead to more serious problems ?

IBS does not cause cancer, bleeding or inflammatory bowel diseases, such as ulcerative colitis

Exams and Tests

Irritable bowel syndrome can be a very difficult diagnosis to make. IBS is called a diagnosis of exclusion, which means that a doctor considers many other alternatives first, perhaps performing tests to rule out other problems. Some of these tests may include laboratory studies, imaging studies (such as a CT scan or small intestinal x-rays), or a lower GI endoscopy (colonoscopy). An endoscopy is a procedure in which a flexible tube with a tiny camera on one end is passed into the GI tract while the patient is under conscious sedation

  • A combination of history, physical examination, and selected tests are used to help diagnose irritable bowel syndrome
  • No single blood test or x-ray study confirms a diagnosis of IBS
