May not be IBS: Jelly like stool likely to be mucoid. This may be Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). IBD is completely different and more serious than IBS. IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion. See a gastroenterologist who will investigate to exclude serious disorders like IBD.

GI symptoms: You report suffering "so long" with GI symptoms, but have you ever sought professional help? Have you been examined by a Gastroenterologist or an Internist? If not, please do so.
