These symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating and gas, mucus in the stool, constipation, and diarrhea. Exact cause of occurrence of irritable bowel syndrome is unknown though, it is associated with increased awareness of bodily functions, and abnormal gastrointestinal tract movements. Diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome is done by tests such as blood tests, stool tests, endoscopic procedures and external imaging procedures.
