Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
We can help you live a healthier, happier life.
Abdominal pain, nausea, cramping, persistent bloating, diarrhea and constipation are issues you need to bring to the attention of your doctor. These symptoms are associated with a common condition called irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
With IBS, the colon is overly sensitive to the natural contractions that move food through the intestines, causing pain, bloating and strong urges for a bowel movement.
Your doctor may diagnose or suspect IBS based on your medical history and symptoms. You may also need to consult a digestive health specialist to rule out more serious causes.
At Gastroenterology Associates, we are all fellowship-trained specialists in digestive diseases who offer comprehensive testing and treatments for IBS, including colonoscopy, to examine the entire colon, and/or laboratory testing of the blood or stool.
