Associated with IBS – the connection with IBS is often a poorly understood disorder.
Although the source of cause for IBS is still up for debate in many medical books, it is quite certain that a specific type of event or lifestyle can likely lead to IBS.
Many IBS patients have resulted in having IBS due to antibiotics, diets high in refined sugar, a significant life event and others. There is no single reason that we can associate to the cause of IBS.
The common symptoms that are associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome are diarrhea, constipation, alternating diarrhea and constipation, bloating, digestion problems, gas, stomach pain, anxiety, dizziness and nausea.
It is important that a qualified physician or gastrointestinal specialist perform a thorough series of test before diagnosing you with IBS. This way we know that your problem is not one that poses an immediate threat to your survival.
When you are attempting to reduce the symptoms that are present, one significant factor to keep in mind is to ensure that you keep your levels of stress under control. Stress can heighten your symptoms of IBS beyond its current state.
Stress can lead a vicious cycle of stress-induced IBS symptoms. When your stress rises to a level that is intolerable by your body, it will show abundant signs of IBS-related symptoms. With an IBS inflicted body, your body is far more likely to show signs of symptoms far more easily than a person without IBS, who are placed under stress.
Outside of stress, other influences can also trigger your IBS symptoms and the most highly associated with IBS is your diet. If you are able to determine which foods that you have now become allergic to, you are far more likely to know what you are to avoid, to start feeling better quickly. Those who are new to IBS, will likely have no idea that they are now allergic to many types of foods, especially those who have never had allergies before.
As you consume certain foods, make a note of your symptoms immediately as well as for the rest of that week. Some symptoms surface immediately, whereas others can be delayed. The difficult food allergies to determine, are those that causes a delayed reaction of symptoms.
There are a number of triggers and influences associated with IBS, however you must focus on the most important areas first. Stress and diet are the first areas to place all of your efforts on.
