9 Signs and Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)


9. Diarrhea


Diarrhea is the most common symptom. One of the three principal types of the disorder is IBS. It affects roughly one-third of IBS patients. A study of 200 adults discovered that those with diarrhea-predominant IBS had 12 bowel movements per week on average, more than twice the amount of adults without IBS.

In IBS, accelerated bowel transit can also cause a sudden, strong urge to urinate. Some patients report that this is a significant source of stress for them, with some even avoiding social situations out of fear of a sudden onset of diarrhea. Furthermore, stool in the diarrhea-predominant type is loose and watery, and it may contain mucus.
