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.
