There is a good, easy to understand article about Irritable Bowel Syndrome HERE. Page 3 of the artcle lists the symptoms that one with IBS might have. These episodes that you have should be of enough concern to you to start investigating the cause of the problem. As you will learn from the article, IBS is a syndrome diagnosed only when all other maladies have been ruled out.
