I have what I assume is IBS-D but sometimes I feel I might suffer with IBS-A. Even when I'm having a bout of diarrhea I always feel like I don't completely empty my bowels. I've even tried a suppository to make me finish but even then I still don't feel empty.
Not sure this is IBS-A or not

I have IBS D too and i have the same symptoms. My stool is not hard at all , more loose on the diarrhea spectrum , yet I have to make 2-3 visits in the morning to feel a "complete evacuation".
Mt two cents : People with IBS whether D,C or A have a problem with incomplete evacuation.

I used to have IBS-D with a lot of bathroom breaks, usually 8-10 and during a flare up 15-20 a day. Now I have IBS-A with periods of diarrhea and constipation so I know the difference. Most of my days are on the "soft side" with 3-4 bowel movements but then I get a few days(2-3) when I cannot have a bowel movement even though I want to. The urge to go and cramps and straining are there but nothing is happening. It is painful and I'm bloated so much that by the end of second day I look like a preagnant lady. I try my best to not have more than 3 days without BM. Then the D-day happens and it feels like the body is purging itself..multiple toilet visits and terrible watery diarrhea all day until there is nothing left. Then it all starts again so it is a viscious cycle. Main problem is that you never know which day it's going to be until you open your eyes in the morning.
