Ditto what Victoria said... A main symptom of IBS is pain relief after a BM. If you're not seeing blood or are not having drastic changes in your bowel habits, then it could indeed be IBS. However, if you are concerned you really should see a doc. Most of the time, if your symptoms are not severe, the doc won't even do any invasive tests. They'll ask about
your bowel habits and what kind of stress you've been under and if you have any food allergies. You might even want to keep a food diary to see what exactly could be triggering your attacks.
