Hello and welcome to my blog. Thank you for visiting. I'm Naomi and I write about living with disabilities and chronic illnesses, but my health is only a portion of who I am. I'm passionate about campaigning and raising awareness.
I post a weekly journal and I also share guest posts as a way to give others a voice.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
IBS affects the digestive system. It is the name given to a condition to longstanding abdominal discomfort and bowel symptoms that cannot be explained by an other illness.
Some of my IBS symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, gas, bloating, tiredness, nausea and chronic constipation/diarrhoea.
Stress and certain foods can triggers.
There is no known cause or cure for IBS but there are things that can help manage symptoms and give patients a better quality of life. The Low FODMAP diet has also been developed to help people with their IBS.
