Suffering from Constipation? It Could be IBS-C or CIC

(BPT) - While many adults experience constipation at various times in their lives and know how uncomfortable it can be, when those symptoms are severe and stick around for long periods of time, you may be suffering from irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) or chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC).

In addition to severity and duration, symptoms of both IBS-C and CIC may include infrequent or hard-to-pass bowel movements (BMs), straining, bloating and not feeling you’ve fully evacuated after a BM. For those with IBS-C abdominal pain is also commonly experienced.
