2) Abdominal Bloating

Patients with IBS frequently experience abdominal bloating. Abdominal bloating can be best described as a sensation of fullness or tightness in the belly. In patients with IBS, abdominal bloating is typically accompanied by intense cramping. Bloating sometimes contributes to poor bowel motility, which in cases of IBS signifies the possibility of developing constipation.
