Differences between IBS-C and IBS-D
- Constipation — Straining, infrequent stools, hard or lumpy stools, and/or a feeling that the bowel does not empty completely. You may feel as if there is a “blockage” preventing them from passing stools.
- Chronic (regular) diarrhea can indicate that you have IBS. Details on diarrhea and constipation can be found here and here!
