Today I have gone to the bathroom 6 times and every time my stool looks normal. It's smooth sausage like the first 5 times I went and the last time it was many little sausages. Still I feel uncomfortable even though my stool looks normal. It feels like I can feel the stool inside me but not the kind of cramps you get with diarrhia. Just the feeling there are more sausage like poops floating around inside my bowls. That's the only way I can describe it. Did anybody had that feeling before ( normal but many poops and this annoying feeling)??? Should I take Imodiom ? I know it's for diarrhia but can it help with frequent bowl movements as well ? Is this typical for Ibs or is it one of these not so typical symptoms ?

Frequent normal bowel movements can be seen in IBS. The stool consistency doesn't CAUSE the other symptoms so even if you normalize it, you can still have all the other symptoms of IBS from pain, frequent BM's, urgency before the rectum should send the "gotta go" signal.A lot of people have abnormal feeling of fullness or other discomfort. It is not a sign of anything other than the IBS.

What do you think of taking Immodiom for the frequency ? Does it cut down on the discomfort too ?

Probably won't change the discomfort. May make you too constipated.Does peppermint tea or antispamsodics help.

Yes, I have that quite often...it is sooo annoying. It's especially annoying because I'm always at work when thisoccurs. In addition, I get anal leakage that sets my bum-hole on fire. I'm in my late 50's, and have had IBS sincepuberty. When I get the cramping episodes, I just want to die. No one in my family--either my parents when I was a child or my husband since I've been an adult have any compassion. I know there are so many people outthere who suffer with ills so much worse than mine, God bless their souls, it's just that I've suffered with this forso many years and even my current Dr. has nothing to help. It's totally a curse. I'm thankful for this forum. It helpsto vent.
