IBS 101 Part 1: Symptoms
Whilst the symptoms of IBS vary from person to person, the most common are:
- Chronic Abdominal Pain / Cramps
- Diarrhea or constipation
- Water Retention
Many people may suffer all the common symptoms, or just a few of them and symptoms can change, dissappear and reappear over time. Also the intensity of each symptom varies for each sufferer. I personally have had such sever cramps that I have blacked out, whilst other people experience a minor discomfort.
