When you don't get enough sleep, you might feel irritable. But did you know that
some kids have intestines that get irritable? This can happen when the muscles
in the large intestine have trouble doing their job.
Irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS,
can cause cramps, gas, and bloating in the belly. It also can make kids have to poop
a lot (diarrhea) or have
trouble pooping (constipation).
