Irritable bowel syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common intestinal condition characterized by abdominal pain and cramps; changes in bowel movements[?] (diarrhea, constipation, or both); gassiness; bloating; nausea; and other symptoms. There is no cure for IBS. Much about the condition remains unknown or poorly understood; however, dietary changes, drugs, and psychological treatment are often able to eliminate or substantially reduce its symptoms.
