IBS directly usually doesn't.However the Vagus nerve is sensitive to GI stimulus (some people without IBS can faint from a BM if they have vagus nerve issues).Abdominal pain and BM's are two of many stimuli that can set it off and when the vagus nerve reacts it can drop your blood pressure too much and cause dizziness and all sorts of too warm, too cool, clammy kinds of things leading up to a faint and some people will faint.If the dizziness is all the time rather than when IBS symptoms set it off you may need to have your inner ears evaluated or other things that cause persistent dizziness.

I have no medical information that says IBS causes some completely totally new kind of dizziness that is specific to IBS and IBS only. Most IBSers are not dizzy. It is not a symptom we all have in common. Here is vasovagal syncope info. Usually IBSers who faint have this disorder too (or some other disorder that causes fainting) and IBS symptoms trigger the VVS. Not that they have some kind of fainting that non-IBSers never have.http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/vasovagal-syncope/DS00806Blood pressure measured when they aren't triggering the vasovagal thing won't help. They need to do something like a tilt test.
