Youre preaching to the choir!! I have suffered to extensive gas, bloating, and mucus most of my life. When im really having a bad bout of Ibs i pass so much mucus that it pours out of me. I have posted a few times about how to conrol this and it seems to be a mystery. Im trying pro biotics at the moment to see if its a bacterial problem, im also trying oil of oregano which kills bacteria overgrowth in the intestines, as well as yeast to see if that helps the mucus. There is 1 product called mucosal sold by jini patel, the author of "listen to your gut". Not sure if it works, but its supposo heal the mucus lining and heal the issue. Might be worth looking into.
IBS has a habit most of the time of calming down during sleep, so if you wake up several times a night on a regular basis, especially with watery diarrhea (and especially if it is typically worse during sleep), that may mean you need a colonoscopy with biopsies unless you had one since that started.IBS can be all day every day.If it seems to be related to hard dry stools, then preventing hard dry stools (either osmotic laxatives or fiber) will help.Some people seem to find antihistamines can help, but mostly this is more about annoying rather than dangerous.

I don't have IBS but had the mucus and gas for 3 weeks straight. I started drinking prune juice in the 4th week. Lots of brown water as a bowel movement which finally wore down what must have been a large "plug". Once it plopped out, I was fine and now keep my bowels open because the whole thing scared me half to death. All I could think of is a cancerous tumor but instead, it was a huge constipated mass and I didn't know it because some would slipped past.

Yes ive had it. I just wanted to warn you that the mucus can even change consistancy and it can still be ibs. My doctors told me they think I got giardia several months ago and my first symptoms were lots of gas and mucus. This eventually reduced but I started noticing translucent film on the toilet water. I freaked out!
I saw several docs, had a upper and lower scope, bloodwork, etc... All normal.
To be honest none of my doctors even seem like they care at all. Not in a mean way but disinterested. I'm guessing because they arent seeing anything alarming.
