Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common, long-term condition of the digestive system that affects around twice as many women as men. Symptoms are usually worse after eating and include stomach pain and cramping, diarrhea or constipation, bloating, excessive flatulence, passing mucus in stools, fatigue, nausea and backache. Symptoms of IBS can be managed by changes in diet and lifestyle.
