Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion and is characteristically abdominal discomfort associated with changes in the stooling which releives on passing stools. Diseases like celiac and microscopic colitis of infiltrative disorders closely mimic IBS. Hence a diagnosis of IBS is made only after ruling out other causes. So you need to XXXXXXX a local gastroenterologist and get yourself worked up. Meanwhite quiting milk and taking a high fibre diet along with zinc supplements helps many.
