Irritable bowel syndrome or functional colopathy??
Hi, I am suffering from irritable bowel syndrome. My family doctor has suggested some pills. I haven't started taking those yet. Whenever I need to go out, I feel abdominal pain, bloating. I would like to know about it and is it similar to functional colopathy?
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a long term gastrointestinal disorder that can cause persistent discomfort. However, most people will not experience severe complications.
People also refer to IBS as functional colopathy. It is a chronic condition. However, its symptoms tend to change over the years. Symptoms often improve as individuals learn to manage the condition.
Is it curable?
There is no cure of IBS. However, if a person with IBS avoids triggers, makes dietary adjustments and follows their doctor's advice, they can significantly reduce the risk of flares and discomfort.
