Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects 1 in 10 Singaporeans and is one of the commonest causes of missing days from work, second only to the common cold! Patients with IBS usually experience abdominal pain or discomfort associated with diarrhoea or constipation; some may alternate between diarrhoea and constipation. As the symptoms of IBS may resemble other conditions such as colitis, diverticular disease, stomach ulcers and even cancer, it is important to consult a doctor to confirm the diagnosis.
