Is this event for you?

In the UK, at any one time, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects around 10-20% of people. Irritable bowel syndrome or IBS is the name doctors use to describe a collection of otherwise unexplained symptoms relating to a disturbance in the bowels.

Our free patient information event with Dr Sanjeev Pattni is for anyone who has wondered whether they might be affected by IBS and would like to learn more about the condition and the routes to diagnosis and treatment and for diagnosed sufferers who would like a better understanding of the disease.

Dr Pattni will talk about IBS followed by a question and answer session.

Symptoms of IBS include:

  • stomach pain or cramps – which can be worse after eating and better after doing a bowel motion
  • bloating – your tummy may feel uncomfortably full and swollen with gas.
  • diarrhoea – you may have watery stool and sometimes need to do a bowel motion urgently
  • constipation – you may strain when passing stool and feel like you can't empty your bowels fully
  • There may be days when your symptoms are better and days when they're worse and may be triggered by food, drink or stress.
