I believe it is all perception. It is what you feel is your problem. I have 2-3 BMs a day but they are perfect consistency until I get D for eating wrong or for no reason. That will be followed by what technically isn't C but I feel it is and if I don't evacuate fully I get D again. A really bad GI doc I saw recently told me I didn't have D or C. I went speechless. I decided you do if you feel that you do.
You don't necessarily have to be C or D to have IBS, as long you have one from time to time and a lot of classic other IBS symptoms more often. I am IBS-A obviously but if you never, ever get C then you are probably IBS-D.

--------------------
IBS-A for 20 years with terrible bloating and gas. On the diet since April 2004. Remember this from Heather's information pages:
"You absolutely must eat insoluble fiber foods, and as much as safely possible, but within the IBS dietary guidelines. Treat insoluble fiber foods with suitable caution, and you'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of them, in very healthy quantities, without problem." Please eat IF foods!
