Are digestive symptoms alone a sign of ibs?

In brief: Absolutely

Ibs (irritable bowel syndrome) is an illness where the gut does not communicate with itself and the rest of the body properly.
As a result, bloating and constipation usually alternate with cramping and diarrhea. Many other illnesses can cause similar problems, and a trip to your doctor is essential in figuring things out. Good luck!
