It's in the details: Painful abdominal cramping may be from specific food sensitivities or true ibs. Pain with defacation could be from constipation. Usually, ibs pain is relieved somewhat with bowel evacuation, only it is quite often if you have the type associated with diarrhea rather than constipation. Talk out some of the details with your family doc -- you may need the opinion or scoping evaluation from a GI doc.
