I don't know of any reason that IBS would cause your tonsils to flare up and get infected.However, having chronic infection problems (with the tonsils or anything else) and the physical stress from that may make the IBS worse than it would be if you weren't having other health problems.

Hey HF,By any chance have you been on antibiotics a lot due to your infections? I know that antibiotics can cause diarrhea with some people and when I'm on them (I get chronic sinus infections- had surgery for it and everything) I almost always get diarrhea. I eat a lot of yogurt and take acidophilus. Maybe that could be affecting your IBS?
