Yes: Irritable bowel syndrome is defined by abdominal pain associated with a change in the frequency or consistency of bowel movements, occurring with a particular frequency over the course of many months. The pain is usually relieved with a bowel movement. So by definition you can't really have IBS without abdominal pain. Many other tests need to be done first to exclude other causes.

Possibly: but only superficially in the abdominal muscle wall. I know it can be hard to tell sometimes so you may want to talk to and be examined by your doctor. Deep abdominal pain well after an exacerbation of irritable bowl is not common. People with IBS can still have good old run-of-the-mill appendicitis, etc.
