Yes, however: The duration of your symptoms ( few months) suggests alternate diagnoses as more likely and having workup for your symptoms would be recommended. Best would be to start with your primary care doc for an exam. Keep a log of your symptoms, type of food, weight changes. IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion and a variety of other conditions will have to be ruled out first.
