As a sufferer of IBS, simple gatherings or eating out with friends is not always the fun, light-hearted activity most know it as. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a health condition that affects the digestive system, it causes a number of uncomfortable symptoms such as bloating, stomach cramps, diarrhoea, constipation, nausea and recurring abdominal pain. There is no official cure but there are ways the condition can be managed, and the pain can be eased.
This includes changes in diet and knowing what foods to avoid. The cause of IBS is not known but some link it to oversensitive nerves in the gut, an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in the gut, stress, depression, anxiety and also eating too quickly. For many, having IBS can worsen feelings of stress, depression and anxiety purely because it means you can’t enjoy eating the foods you love, or you may not feel comfortable dining in a restaurant which is where most social gatherings are held.
Here are some tips to help with treatment of IBS:
