What is irritable bowel syndrome?

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is an intestinal disorder that has symptoms such as stomach cramps, bloating sensation, and change in bowel habits.

Some individuals with IBS may suffer from either diarrhea or constipation, or even both. In some cases, persons with IBS may have an urge to pass stools, but will not be able to do so. The cause for IBS is still obscure, but there is treatment available.
