It is quite common. It happens to me if I am not careful with my diet. You might try the FODMAP diet to control IBS symptoms. It has been clinically tested in a number of countries showing 70-80% improvement in symptoms. It was developed by a GI doctor and a RD. You can read about in the first three links in my signature. Many of us on these boards use Heather's Eating for IBS diet and the FODMAP diet together with good results.

You might try removing tea and coffee from your diet as caffeine is a strong GI stimulant know to exacerbate IBS symptoms.
