By definition, IBS is supposed to be chronic but intermittent, which means you should NOT have nonstop diarrhea every single day.

Are you taking a soluble fiber supplement? One general rule I've gotten from a GI doc is that diarrhea that does not resolve with 15-20 grams of a soluble fiber supplement per day is a big red flag for something other than IBS.
