April is Irritable Bowel Syndrome month. IBS is a condition that affects many people and takes on various symptoms. IBS is not a disease, but rather a group of symptoms that occur together caused by changes in how the gastrointestinal (GI) tract works. In the past, IBS may have been called colitis, spastic colon or bowel, or nervous colon, and IBS has both physical and mental causes.

The symptoms of IBS may be belly pain, discomfort or changes in stool consistency or frequency and is usually relieved by a bowel movement. To meet the definition of IBS, symptoms need to occur three times a month for three months without any other disease or injury that could explain the pain.
