I have alternating IBS also but seem to suffer more from C. With constipation, I have a full bloated feeling even if I eat very little. Its very uncomfortable and it usually will radiate to my back as well. When I have the cramping with D, I will get very intense cramping that usually will come fast. I usually will have to curl myself up in a fetal position to get a little bit of relief.
