Hello Anxious,

You seem to be so anxious about what is going on with you but I understand because I've been there too. Your symptoms might not be IBS as you seem to think (This is just my opinion I'm no professional) Loose stool can be caused by Infection by bacteria (the cause of most types of food poisoning),Infections by other organisms,Eating foods that upset the digestive system and Allergies to certain foods.

As for your gas/bloating issue the main causes are eating foods that take long to digest such as
beans, cabbage, broccoli, raisins, lentils and prunes among others. Food intolerance to certain foods can be a cause too.

Just to be safe, I'd say you go and pay a doctor a visit because it's only them who can tell you what your problem is. Am just a common man and this is my opinion. It might be something serious or not.

Have your doctor test your stools for blood.

Best of luck.
