Access from EThOS:
Bloating and distension remain important and intrusive manifestations of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Although much of previous literature has used the the terms bloating and distension interchangeably, epidemiological data suggest that (i) distension is seen more commonly in IBS with constipation (IBS-C) compared with IBS with diarrhoea (JBS-D) patients (ii) bloating and distension seem to "correlate predominantly but not exclusively in IBS-C.
