IBS Worse from Sitting – The symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be a mystery as to when it happens and how it happens.
Random Onset of Symptoms
However, we do know one thing and this is the sporadic behaviour of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Sometimes IBS symptoms can just come about without presenting any type of warning before it onsets. It is not an easy task to deal with symptoms that just spring up all of a sudden.
For those who are suffering from escalated symptoms after sitting down, there are a number of reasons that can cause this. One of them is that gas can be trapped in your intestines and when you sit, it can cause more pressure within your gut against the wall of your intestines.
The Reasons for Pain
Other reasons may be to the effect of gravity, since when you are sitting, your body is not in an upright position but instead, in a right angle. Note that the body is in the same state of health whether you are sitting or laying down or standing.
The symptoms may be more noticeable however when sitting down but it does not make your health worse by any means. The best way to start reversing your symptoms, is to take some time and jot down all the symptoms that you are experiencing and prioritize them as to which ones are presenting the most problems for you.
At that point, you can then come back to this site and start to review the list of Known IBS Symptoms section. Review all of the materials presented in this section to fully understand why you are experiencing those symptoms and then how to reverse them.
As you are reversing your symptoms, ensure that you have lots of patience and keep persisting to reverse them. Some symptoms may take longer to reverse than others, so keep at it and do not give up half way. When the symptoms have been decreased, they often stay at that level, so know that the symptom reversals are permanent. Now go and start making a change to your life for the better!
