What your describing is actually quite common. A lot of people with IBS have intestines that are very sensitive. Even before putting something in your mouth, your body will react to the sense of smell in food. You will salivate, and everything will "wake up". Same thing when you eat, its like an assembly line turning on. When you chew on food, your body is getting ready for the digestive process. When you have IBS, your digestive process is either too fast or too slow. Your system wants to get the job done however its not at the pace as a normal person. Certain senses respond differently which may be why you can't tolerate certain foods which is very common in IBS.
