Yes! Absolutely this is possible and it is more common than one might think. This is something that I have, also. There are ALSO times when I have NO trouble with either type of IBS and then lo and behold...back it comes.It might help you to keep track (for a couple of weeks) of absolutely everything you eat...at ANY time of day... and perhaps you might see a pattern. Its discouraging when it seems a certain food causes trouble at one time ...and NOT at another time... but I have learned to cut waaaaay back on trigger foods. Don't be surprized if your 'trigger foods' do not match the ones that seem 'common' to others. We are all different!Good luck to you!
