The Characteristics Of Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
, I want to confirm whether my suspicion of a disease that I feel is true or not. Since more than a month ago, my digestion was not good. Difficulty defecating, the stool feels are still not all out, stomach aches, mules but when the stool is difficult / does not come out, sometimes nausea, sometimes the body feels weak, a week ago I had difficulty removing bowel movements, and even though it came out, only a few, diarrhea, liquid, a little slimy. Reasons that might make me sick; eat gas food: cabbage, and because of the urgency I take diarrhea medicine when the stomach starts to defecate, eat spicy food (only a few times), almost every day to consume instant noodles. I do research, more precisely just read a little, from the symptoms I feel, is it true that I have irritated the large intestine? Yesterday, I took 2mg of loperamide 1 time, and supplemented with film-coated caplet (Becefort) 1 time, and even today. My stool is not liquid anymore. Please respond.

As you already know, basically Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a long-term disorder of the digestive system that often occurs but many people are not aware of it. What is attacked is the large intestine, and is usually more often experienced by young adult women. And usually this condition is triggered by a state of stress, due to eating certain foods, or hormonal changes, such as during menstruation for example. In addition, other factors that can trigger IBS include:
gastrointestinal infections psychological disorders disorders consuming food that is too fast or even too slow in the digestive tract (so constipation or diarrhea) eating certain foods that are difficult to digest (too much fat, sugar, too acidic or too much carbohydrate) disorders of brain function in sending signals to the intestine. Symptoms include:
diarrhea or constipation that often appears alternately and there is mucous abdominal bloating abdominal pain or cramps nausea or vomiting headache often burping or farting easily fatigued quickly appetite disturbed heartburn , because if not handled properly as early as possible it can cause a decrease in quality of life including work productivity, in addition IBS is a trigger factor for hemorrhoids or hemorrhoids and can lead to psychological disorders such as anxiety and depression.
Basically what you need to do is to regulate your diet and types of food in the sense of not being late eating, consuming small portions of food, getting enough water every day, eating in a hurry and avoiding fatty and canned foods.
