IBS is the most common condition encountered in clinical practice but one of the least well understood. Until recently many physicians did not considered IBS to be a disease at all they viewed it nothing more than a somatic manifestation of psychological stress. It is frustrating condition for the patient because of poor quality of life and equally frustrating for the physician. IBS causes a lot of mental agony to the patients as well as the physicians who face a challenge treating this disease. The exact etiology IBS is still incompletely understood but most common factors are psychological disturbances like anxiety, depression along with luminal factor such as diet and the gut microbiota thought to play a important role. The patients present with variable abdominal symptoms, but constipation, recurrent diarrhea, pain and distention of abdomen are predominant clinical features. The diagnosis is confirmed on the basis of clinical observation, otherwise most of the investigations are found in normal limit.
