Since one week IBS hit me again. I don't have diarrhia or constipation but my stool is on the soft side, yellowish brown and and when I have a bm it's usually many small pieces of stool. It's not to the point that I can not do anything but it's an annoying discomfort in my tummy which ruines at least 30% of my day. Is it normal not to have any appetite even when your IBS is not extreme ? I also get depressed because of the quality of live thing with IBS. It fluctuates during the day. A few hours a day it's almost gone but than the discomfort starts again. Anybody has these appetite issues with IBS even when you don't have to lie down on the couch all day ?

It isn't a major symptom of IBS. But some people when they feel stress (either emotional or physical) will lose their appetite.Functional upper GI problems (and a lot of IBSers have those as well) can make you lose your appetite even if they do nothing at all to your stool.

I have severe IBS and my appetite sucks. I don't feel very hungry most of the time and when I eat I can only eat a few bites at time. It's also hard to even want to eat because I know how it will make me feel.
