In brief: Abdominal Discomfort

Ibs is a functional disorder affecting how food moves through your GI tract.
Lower abdominal pain, cramping, bloating with diarrhea, constipation or both are common signs. It can be triggered by stress/anxiety or different foods. The diagnosis is usually made by ruling out other disorders.
