Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Diarrhea (IBS-D)
Updated: Sep 15
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common problem that affects the large intestine. IBS can cause abdominal cramping, bloating, and a change in bowel habits. Some people with the disorder have constipation. Some have diarrhea, while others go back and forth between the two. IBS does not harm the intestines although it can cause a great deal of discomfort. The most common signs and symptoms include:
Abdominal pain, cramping or bloating that is typically relieved or partially relieved by passing a bowel movement
Diarrhea or constipation — sometimes alternating bouts of diarrhea and constipation
Mucus in the stool (Mayo Clinic)
