You have almost typical symptoms of biliary colic due to gallstones (cholelithiasis). Ultrasound of the biliary tract will confirm or rule out this common problem for a American female at your age.

Your symptoms and timing suggest an upper gi connection with esophagus/ stomach/duodenum and/or gallbladder being involved. Symptoms are not likely to be related to IBS and need to be evaluated timely with your doc’s help.
