In brief: Probiotics

Question is too vague.
From google "irritable bowel syndrome (ibs) is a disorder that leads to abdominal pain and cramping, changes in bowel movements, and other symptoms. Ibs is not the same as inflammatory bowel disease (ibd)." try probiotics. Diet likely major role. Lactose or fructose intolerances are common. Follow up with your gastroenterologist.
