IBS is characterised by altered bowel habit, that is constipation and diarrhoea. Also the symptoms are present first thing in the morning. There is accompanied indigestion which makes the stool appear coloured and malodorous. Since there is a recent change in your bowel habit unlike before, it would be wise to get examined and also stool tested for any infections. The pain could be due to accompanied gastritis and if you do feel nausea and vomiting better to report to your Doctor. Eat fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Keep away from milk and milk products and wheat for now. Drink enough water. Kindly don't delay and do get consult from your Doctor.
