Irritable Bowel Syndrome - Spastic Colon - a General Overview

Irritable bowel syndrome is a fairly common functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorder. It used to be called Spastic Colon, a term that is still being used by some.

It can cause abdominal pain, cramping in the abdomen, bloating, excessive intestinal gas formation, trapped intestinal gas / wind, diarrhea or constipation, nausea and what is percieved as stomach cramps.

It is a complex disorder but not a life threatening one. The pain and discomfort keeps coming back again and again and can have a major negative long-term impact on the patient's life. Today it is estimated that more than 1 out of every 10 people are affected.

People with Irritable Bowel Syndrome need to understand that it can be possible to manage the symptoms to some degree by changing lifestyle, managing eating habits and keeping their stress levels low.

The first step in treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome is to get as much information, it's symptoms and possible treatments as possible. On this website we endeavour to meet that need.

A number of symptoms which occur together would indicate that the person may be suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome / Spastic Colon. The pattern of symptoms vary from patient to patient. The following points will help in identifying the possibility that IBS may be the culprit.

The symptoms may occur more frequently during menstruation, after a meal or when stress levels are very high.

The causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome is not yet known. The muscle of the intestine contract and relax in a coordinated manner. If you are a sufferer, then the contractions are likely to be stronger and would last longer than normal. Food will be forced through the intestine very fast and this will cause intestinal gas, bloating and diarrhea. There could be an opposite situation as well. When the food passage slows down the stool tends to become dry and harder. This can lead to abdominal pain, constipation and discomfort.
