So the major problems associated with passing bowels must be considered with the large intestine itself. IBS concerns the irregular function of the large intestine:  it involves recurrent diarrhoea, constipation or both associated with abdominal pain. IBS is mainly associated with depression, anxiety, stress or any intestinal infection in the past. It is a chronic condition and needs a long term treatment for it.

IBS is one of the conditions associated with inflammatory bowel disease. It can also be called as irritable colon, spastic colon, spastic colitis or mucous colitis.

    Causes of Irritable Bowel syndrome

    Usually the cause of irritable bowel syndrome is unknown:  it may be due to hypersensitivity system or any infection to the gastrointestinal tract.

    Factors triggering the IBS are:

    1. Food: certain kinds of foods such as bakery items, dairy products and carbonated drinks often trigger the IBS by increasing the production of bowel gases.

    3. Hormones: in female hormone change are responsible for IBS.
    4. Systems responsible for IBS are: IBS is not a minor disease of the intestine. There are several factors leading to IBS such as nervous system, intestine, intestinal musculature together constitute the cause for IBS
    5. Nervous System: Abdominal pain persistently on passing stools or gases causes abnormalities in nerves associated with the abdomen leads to constipation, diarrhoea etc.
    6. Muscle contraction in intestine: intestinal muscles are lined in such a way, its contraction causes movement of food below in the GI tracts, if contractions persists for longer time, and it leads to vigorous, painful cramps and diarrhoea.
    7. Complications of IBS: It is very important to treat IBS as early as possible otherwise it leads to:
    8. Haemorrhoids: Chronic constipation and diarrhoea results in haemorrhoids.
    9. Stress and anxiety: due to IBS and its pain, a person remains stressful and anxious which results in the worst condition even.
