Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome also commonly known as IBS is a condition that has been led to believe by medical practitioners that often follows on from food poisoning in circumstances where food poisoning can be high risk. One of which can be from eating on foreign holidays. If you are a sufferer of IBS and have been medically diagnosed as a result of food poisoning from a holiday in another country, you may be able to make a claim for compensation against a holiday tour operator.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome explained

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects proper functioning of the gut. This just has to do with the functionality, but other parts of the gut still look normal. It usually causes abdominal pain, bloating, constipation and diarrhoea. This can be quite an uncomfortable condition that one will have to deal with over a long period of time.

Symptoms and IBS diagnosis

Some of the most common symptoms for IBS include changes in bowel movement which result in diarrhoea or constipation, pain in the abdomen and a feeling of bloating. Diagnosis for IBS usually takes place at hospital and involves a process of ruling out of conditions. There are two main criteria used during this process. First is the Rome criteria where you must have experienced some signs like abdominal discomfort over the past few months and change in bowel movement. If you have the above signs, then a test is done. Secondly, there is manning criteria where doctor finds out whether you get pain relief after defecation which amongst other tests doctors check for changes in stools.
