How is IBS Diagnosed?
Other than being known as a condition affecting the function of your digestive system, no-one really knows what IBS is, which means when it comes to diagnosing IBS, there is no one specific ‘test’.
There are blood tests which can rule out other conditions that share similar symptoms so it is very important that you get a proper diagnosis from your doctor first if you experience some of the symptoms below.
IBS - A group of symptoms
Just like you are unique, so can be your symptoms. Irritable Bowel Syndrome means a group of symptoms that occur together and vary in severity from one person to another, so the sooner you can identify your symptoms, the sooner you can get help to try and address them.
Here is a list of the most common IBS symptoms
- Gas or wind
- Abdominal pain
- A change in your bowel habits – such as diarrhoea, constipation or sometimes both
- Feeling sluggish and tired
