Brief Answer: Answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for providing the information I asked for. Since this is an acute onset of pain associated with large bowel movements, it is less likely to be due to IBS-D. It could be due to gastroenteritis secondary to probably infection. I would advice you to get a stool test done to rule out infection. For pain relief you can take antispasmodic medications like drotaverine. I hope that answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
