In brief: See your doc

No details re: your age, symptom details, etc.
Chronic diarrhea should be checked out. Maybe ibs but...Maybe something else like infection, parasite, celiac sprue, inflammatory bowel disease, lactose intolerance, or several other causes. See your doc.

In brief: Very possible

Irritable bowel syndrome is the multifactorial consequence of hormonal, immune system and nervous system dysfunction resulting from genetic predispositions and dietary and environmental insults.
The predominant symptoms like diarrhea cramps constipation are the result of autonomic nervous system instability. Pts like you may benefit from a metabolically directed approach.
