Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Here's what you need to know.
Stress, diet and sleep could all be exacerbating your symptoms.
April is Irritable Bowel Syndrome Awareness Month. HuffPost UK looks at the common triggers for IBS and treatments offered. It’s thought that 12 million people in the UK are impacted by the condition, which is characterised by frequent abdominal discomfort and bowel symptoms that cannot be explained by any other disease.
It's IBS Awareness Month, so here's all you need to know.
Pharmacists play a key role in signposting people with IBS symptoms to see their GP for a diagnosis. Our members have reported that talking openly about their condition with people who understand really helps them break this cycle supporting them in taking control of their IBS.

Today I'm going to be talking shit, or poo if you prefer. Not the first conversation topic you'd reach for necessarily, but one that definitely needs to be spoken about more, once we're done talking about the weather that is. The matter on my mind is actually IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which is so much more than just poo.

It's hard to refute that the epitome of a fit man is someone who has a chiseled mid range you could grate cheese on. Then there are men like me. We are bombarded with the latest craze in Men's magazines and on the Internet, about men having six pack abs. This for me is a stomach churning thought especially as I suffer with IBS.
