I've noticed that in the mornings especially I have a lot of gas, but this is also the time when my IBS is usually at its worst (not always though). Sometimes I can't tell if it's just gas or of I have to go to the bathroom... so I find myself going to the restroom about 5 times in the morning, even though I actually only go about 2 times! I can't tell the difference because gas pain causes me just as much discomfort as BM pain. And also, sometimes the gas gets trapped between having BMs... this is really odd to me, is this normal for IBS? Honestly, gas pain is one of my biggest discomforts!
