I know that for typical IBS pain should go away after a bowel movement. But sometimes when I go, I don't get pain but more of an ache on my left side.. Maybe three inches to the left of my belly button. Is this normal?

IBS pain doesn't have to go away, but if you have rectal hypersensitivity as part of your IBS (common in IBS, not common in other things) that does tend to lessen shortly after a BM when the rectum is empty.That doesn't mean all pain in all parts of the colon will go away after a BM, and pain (achy to sharp) can occur anywhere the colon is (right side, left side, up under the ribs to down to the hips, or across the top of the abdomen)

Mine can stick around after a bowel movement. The pressing pain lets up but the achey pain stays.
