    It seems these days irritable bowel syndrome is becoming very common and many people don't realise that they are suffering from it.

    In my early adult years I had IBS and a very bad diet. My diet has since improved a lot and my IBS has cleared up, I eat mostly vegetarian tho I like meat as a treat. I do think that for me anyway diet played a huge role in my IBS.

    I have suffered from IBS in the past and have found that improving my diet has helped quite a lot.

    Great informative hub by the way. Good job.

    IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a terrible affliction to live with. There is no real treatment for it, and no abnormality is usually found on any investigations that you have done. However,
    I have found that using bran or some other bulky kind of supplement is beneficial for the symptoms. It can be a chronic condition, which means that you live with it all the time, or you can go into remission (time of relief of symptoms). I have suffered from this for a number of years, and empathise with anyone who has had or is dealing with this  condition at the present time.
    I have found however that "Mintec" and "Buscopan" (which is an antispasmodic) can sometimes help with the symptoms of IBS. You will need a script for the Buscopan. Good Luck with it. BB

    Irritable bowel syndrome is nothing but a feeling of fear. Anxiety disorder is the main cause.

    IBS is definitely MORE than a "feeling of fear".  It consists of alternating diarrhea or constipation with severe abdominal cramps, along with other symptoms.  Watching what you eat can help prevent the worst attacks.  The trigger foods seem to be different for each individual.  For some people it is fats, spices, alcohol, or coffee.  For me, it is CORN and peas.  Peanuts and other nuts don't help, either!  Eating a diet with lots of raw fruits and veggies, plenty of fluids, and adding psyllium (Metamucil) to your diet, will help immensely in preventing IBS symptoms.  It is a miserable condition, and very painful.

    Oh, forgot to add that IBS causes me to wake up in the middle of the night with such severe cramps that it almost makes me cry.  Surely NOT a "feeling of fear" or "anxiety".  IBS is a very painful condition and NOT all in your head!!! Shame on you!

    A good quality preparation of Aloe Vera gel taken as advised on the bottle is magic for a range of bowel complaints.  Its very soothing and will reduce pain and cramping and it seems to bring the bowel back to regularity.  Strongly recommend it - tried loads of different products.  Aloe Vera is very bitter and a chore to take in the beginning, but you get used to it.  I had a friend who used it as a last resort with ulcerative colitis and was able to avoid surgery as her symptoms improved considerably.
