IBS or irritable bowel syndrome is also known as mucous colitis, spastic colon, irritable colon, and spastic colitis. The cause of irritable bowel syndrome isn't well understood. Its diagnosis is generally made based on the symptoms.
The symptoms of IBS may vary from person to person. But, they typically last at least three months for at least three days per month.
IBS Pain, by the very definition, is the strongest symptom experienced by patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Most people with IBS experience continuous or frequent abdominal pain. Irritable bowel syndrome pain is generally accompanied with changes in your bowel movements such as diarrhea, constipation, etc.
The IBS pain may get worse after eating, and relieved after a bowel movement. But, sometimes, the pain may become worse even after a bowel movement. You cannot always predict how the IBS pain may change over time. Irritable bowel syndrome pain may look like cramping, aching, sharp or throbbing, or stabbing.
With this cramping or stabbing pain, you can also experience:
While IBS pain can be felt in the entire abdomen (belly), but it is most often reported in the lower portion of the abdomen.
Irritable bowel syndrome pain most often occurs in either the lower right or lower left side. Some people may also experience upper right side abdominal pain without any other symptoms.
IBS stomach pain is a common complaint for people afflicted with irritable bowel syndrome. It can cause bouts of stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and/or constipation, and changes in how your stool looks like. IBS stomach pain may affect entire belly.
Abdominal pain is a common symptom experienced by people living with irritable bowel syndrome. Some people even experience back pain, but the link between low back pain and IBS isn’t very clearly understood.
Some studies indicate the prevalence of back pain in people with IBS, where it is found that it is possible for the abdominal IBS pain to affect the back. The internal organs often refer pain to other location of the body. It is also possible for the back pain to be referred as a result of the IBS.
Here are some effective ways to help with IBS pain relief.
There isn’t a specific or single treatment for IBS back pain. Your doctor may recommend many of the treatments that can ease IBS symptoms and also ease back pain based on your individual condition. Sometimes, the back pain is because of some other problem and not the IBS.
If the back pain is due to abdominal bloating, gas, cramping, diarrhea, or constipation, he or she will first treat them. Complementary treatments such as acupuncture or specific exercises can also be helpful to ease symptoms of both back pain and IBS.
IBS pain should never be ignored. If you notice warning signs and symptoms of IBS, contact your doctor immediately. Don’t try to diagnose by yourself. Making healthy lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise will help improve the condition and keep you IBS pain-free.
