High Fiber diet: Rome II criteria define IBS as having abdominal pain/discomfort along with at least two of the following. (1) Defecation relieves pain/discomfort. (2) Onset of pain associates with an abnormal frequency of stools (more than three times per day or fewer than three times per week). (3) Onset of pain associates with a change in the form of the stool. Your symptoms are compatible with IBS.
