There are decent treatments for IBS with medication, food elimination diets, probiotics, and even stress reliving strategies. OTC Imodium (loperamide) may help slow BMs in the meantime.

Thoughts...: If you're having a significant amount of diarrhea and nausea so that you're not taking in the same amounts of fluids, you could be dehydrated (which will cause the fatigue and dizziness).
