In brief: Doubt it

If you feel full/tight in this area it is often trapped gas in what is the highest point of your intestines when standing.
Lay down with your butt above trunk level & the gas should eventually pass. Your colon in that location is tied to its location & does not twist. IBS is a vague label that has many subtle symptoms & could also be present.
