GI Issues: IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion - that means that all other explanatory conditions must be ruled out first. I am concerned with the 40 pound weight loss (unless you are on a diet) and the back pain (IBS sufferers usually have abdominal pain). And the green stool is unusual for IBS. I would suggest a visit to a gastroenterologist.
