Abstract: Intermittent abdominal cramping, diarrhea and/or constipation, and bloating that tends to occur more than 12 weeks during a given year, may be irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Although IBS does not cause permanent damage to the intestines, this problem can be disabling, cause lost work time, and keep you from doing the things you enjoy. About 20% of the adult population suffers from IBS. The condition is more common among women than among men.
