Inflammatory bowel disease (IBS) can lead to iron malabsorption, which can lead to anaemia and signs of low blood pressure, such as dizziness.
Do I have IBS?
The NHS outlined four “main symptoms” of IBS, which include:
- Stomach pain or cramps
The stomach cramps tend to feel worse after eating a meal and is usually relieved after going to the toilet.
As for bouts of diarrhoea, it’s common to feel a sense of urgency to rush off to the bathroom.
