It’s shocking when you think someone is running away from their duties and so they give you some name of some weird medical condition they have and it turns out to be actually true.
We know this gentleman who is always having ‘run sto’. Ebei !!!!!!!!!! Unless he doesn’t drink water, he will visit the ‘white house’ right now. Then one day he calls and says he cannot make it to work because of his condition. Then we said if it is ‘run sto’ dierr, a few tablets of imodium/colodium will solve the problem quick. Then he said he doesn’t have ‘run sto’ but he has Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Initially we all thought it was a lie until we decided to ask and it turns out that it is an actual medical condition.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a mixture of stomach discomfort or pain and trouble with bowel habits: either going more or less often than normal or having a different kind of stool (thin, hard, or soft and liquid).
It’s not life-threatening, but Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be a long-lasting problem that changes how you live your life. People with the condition may miss work or school more often, and they may feel less able to take part in daily activities.
People with Irritable Bowel Syndrome may experience symptoms of diarrhea, constipation or a mixture of the two. They may also have a lot of stomach pains especially after eating and also a lot of gas.
There is no specific cause for the condition but it can be triggered like the way allergies are triggered. Therefore a particular ingredient in food or drinks can cause it and also a particular chemical composition of a drug can trigger the condition.
There is also no specific lab test that can be run to determine if you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome. However your doctor may take a look at your symptoms and ask you to run a few tests before he determines if you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome or not.
Nearly all people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome can get help, but no single treatment works for everyone. You and your doctor will need to work together to find the right treatment plan to manage your symptoms.
You’ll need to learn what your triggers are and make some lifestyle changes and also take some medication.
No one has a “soft” stomach or “hard” stomach and so the next time you visit the ‘white house’ frequently you might want to critically observe the frequency with which you went there; it might not be ‘run sto’ afterall but Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
