Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) what is it? – video | Patient | Dr Sarah Jarvis

Do you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be quite debilitating and many members of FibroFlutters have been diagnosed with it. To help people understand the condition better, and raise awareness, I share this video and information leaflet.

The intense pain leaves me pacing and then writhing, and pacing and writhing….
… A vicious cycle of trying traditional meds, essential oil blends, and drinking peppermint tea.

Dr Sarah Jarvis MBE, GP and Clinical Director of Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a long-term (chronic) condition of the gut (bowel) that causes episodes of tummy (abdominal) cramps, bloating and either constipation or diarrhoea. IBS is a problem with how the bowel works. There is otherwise nothing wrong with the bowel.

IBS can affect anyone at any age but it most often first develops in young adults. Women are affected more often than men.

To help develop, nurture and help to create a multidisciplinary approach to all aspects of medical healthcare so that #chronicillness & #raredisease patients can receive the type of care and treatments that they need.

The work we do involves disease awareness, health awareness, and, helping to point people in the direction of where to get legitimate health communications and information. As well as this we attend events and use patient voice to get important messages to help create better systems and processes for patients.

Bridging the gap between stakeholders is a different type of awareness raising. It involves sharing events and campaigns by clinicians, pharmaceutical companies, patient led projects, healthcare providers… the list is quite variable. We have newsletters to ensue this which uses our slogan – #chronicillnessVOICE for everyone #notjustpatients
