Honestly your best bet is to get tests done, colonoscopy, blood, stool, upper GI tests to rule out IBD (crohn's or ulcerative colitis) since they possess similar symptoms to IBS and fibro can be an extraintestinal manifestation from having an IBD....this way if they don't find any inflammation/ulcers then that will possibly rule out IBD, there is a condition called microscopic colitis in which they have to take biopsies from your colon and check for it under a microscope since it wouldn't show up via colonoscopy which can also have the same symptoms as IBD or IBS.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
