Hi stymee, Yes its true you can have both IBS and Crohn's and also from what I know, its not uncommon to have constipation with Crohn's. I take Miralax for about
3 years now because Zelnorm didn't agree with me and I am so much better. I also would consider fiber if I were you. You will want to start off in small doses and work your way up and increase your water intake but in time it really makes a difference. Chronic constipation can lead to problems like diverticulosis as well so fiber is extremely important. I hope you are able to find relief soon. There is another member here, pb4 that has both Crohn's and IBS and may be able to give you some more info although I believe she suffers more with D.
