Irritable Bowel Symdrome

Diseases

IBS is a condition in which the bowels do not function properly, yet there is no diagnosis of an actual disease. There are a number of symptoms, including pain or discomfort that goes away after one or more bowel movements.

Ulcers are breaks in the lining of the stomach or duodenum that hurt due to exposure to gastric acids. Most ulcers are caused by an infection called Helicobacter pylori (HP), and can be cured by appropriate antibiotic treatment.
