In brief: Not really

By definition, irritable bowel syndrome (ibd) must include abdominal pain or discomfort of some sort along with diarrhea and/or constipation.
If there is no pain we generally refer to the diseases as functional diarrhea or constipation. This is done primarily for classification for research purposes.
