In people with irritable bowel syndrome, "the colon is more sensitive than usual and reacts strongly to certain foods, stressful situations and bacteria," explains Bret A. Lashner, MD, director of the Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease at the Cleveland Clinic's Department of Gastroenterology. Additionally, the areas of the brain that control bowel movement overrespond when called into action. As a result, the intestines squeeze too hard or not hard enough, causing food to move too quickly or too slowly through the intestines. That's when pain kicks in.

"If you suspect you have IBS, it's important to see your doctor and get the best treatment for your symptoms," Dr. Lashner says.
