- ABDOMINAL PAIN
- IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME
- DIET & LIFESTYLE
A recent survey has shown that nearly 1 in 4 people in the UK suffered from Irritable Bowel Syndrome or "IBS". IBS is a chronic condition with symptoms including abdominal pain, bloating and a change in bowel habit such as constipation and/or diarrhoea.
Although medical researchers are still unsure of what exactly causes this syndrome, it remains a serious condition with a strongly negative impact on the sufferer’s quality of life. The unpredictable nature of the pain, diarrhoea and other symptoms may exert a profoundly disturbing influence on the patient’s private and professional life.
This section of the Buscopan® website looks at the symptoms, potential causes and helpful treatments for this condition.
