Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a condition that affects the digestive system.
There is no known identifiable cause but certain foods and drinks may make it worse.
Its symptoms can cause constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, flatulence, stomach pain and cramps.
It tends to run in families but these symptoms can also be signs of something more serious, so if you think you have IBS then this needs to be confirmed by your doctor.
