What is IBS. What are the symptoms of IBS.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
irritable bowel syndrome is a functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorder, meaning symptoms are caused by changes in how the GI tract works. People with a functional GI disorder have frequent symptoms; however, the GI tract does not become damaged. IBS is a group of symptoms that occur together, not a disease. In the past, IBS was called colitis, mucous colitis, spastic colon, nervous colon, and spastic bowel. The name was changed to reflect the understanding that the disorder has both physical and mental causes and is not a product of a person’s imagination.
IBS is diagnosed when a person has had abdominal pain or discomfort at least three times a month for the last 3 months without other disease or injury that could explain the pain. The pain or discomfort of IBS may occur with a change in stool frequency or consistency or be relieved by a bowel movement.
IBS is often classified into four subtypes based on a person’s usual stool consistency. These subtypes are important because they affect the types of treatment that are most likely to improve the person’s symptoms. The four subtypes of IBS are
IBS with constipation (IBS-C)
hard or lumpy stools at least 25 percent of the time
loose or watery stools less than 25 percent of the time
IBS with diarrhea (IBS-D)
loose or watery stools at least 25 percent of the time
hard or lumpy stools less than 25 percent of the time
Mixed IBS (IBS-M)
hard or lumpy stools at least 25 percent of the time
loose or watery stools at least 25 percent of the time
Unsubtyped IBS (IBS-U)
hard or lumpy stools less than 25 percent of the time
loose or watery stools less than 25 percent of the time
