Just about every afternoon I started getting really bad gas and multiple small bowel movements.    It doesn't matter what I eat and it gets worse into the evening.   I'll feel like I have to go and like I said,  have a very small bowel movement and about five minutes later I'll have to go again.   Not diarrhea,   but just a very small amount.   I thought maybe I was having the opposite of my normal IBS-D and tried a laxative...huge mistake.    I'll  also feel my energy wane.   I know this is a common thing in the afternoon,  but I wonder if lack of energy can be causing my intestinal problems.    Any ideas?

No ideas, but I have a similar afternoon situation.  Prior to IBS, I never had a BM in the afternoon, but now it is a daily occurrence and so to is the gas and the bloating that goes with it.  I too get tired and I feel that it is related to the strain that this condition puts on your body.
