Nearly one-third of people experience IBS symptoms

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), characterized by abdominal pain, bloating, constipation and diarrhea, now affects 30 percent of the population, according to a Reuters report in mid-2009.

The disorder has many potential causes, including diet, stress, trapped gas, medications, hormonal changes and genetics.

Other causes might include the following:

  • Gallbladder removal
  • Anxiety and depression
  • An overactive immune response
  • Faulty brain-intestinal tract communication

IBS symptoms range from stomach upset to rectal bleeding. The condition also reveals itself in muscle aches, insomnia, irritability, dizziness and trembling. In addition to bleeding, serious IBS warning signs include anemia and a family history of colon cancer.
