do I have IBS?

I was hoping someone could shed some light. I am wondering if I have some form of IBS. When I am stressed, have a change in work schedule or travel I get constipated. If I take a stool softner like Bisacodyl I get severe cramps and bad you know what. Lately, I have eaten out at some nice restaraunts (in the last six months) and within thirty mins of eating will get severe cramping and bloating then will have bad diahrea. I wonder if there is something in the meat or food here in Vegas?? The first time I had the cramping we had just gotten married and were here for our honeymoon. We ate at Delmonico steak house. I spent the first night of our honeymoon on the darn toilet.
We moved here a couple months later. Then, it happened again when we ate at Bellagio, I got the cramps a second time we ate at Delmonico (without dih.) and again a week ago after eating at the Black Angus. It is very painful and strange. So, I get constipated with change and blown out with high end food???? HELP!

Re: do I have IBS?

It could be that red meat that is cooked out does not agree with you. Most places put meat tenderizer on it because they can't afford the returns/ complaints and some places use marinated sauces.

Try cooking a steak at home and see how your GI system reacts. Are you eating other stuff like salads that are treated with nitrites?? This is a problem with lots of people.

Take care ---Harry
