Is this part of IBS or something else?

After a lifetime of tummy issues, about 2 years ago I got diagnosed with IBS (I'm almost 20 now).
Having suffered for so long, I seem to have learned what some of my triggers are and have been able to somewhat avoid getting REALLY sick frequently. Although it still happens, and when I get the attacks (mostly during menstruation, stressful times, after eating greasy, milky, or very sweet foods) they're quite awful.
However, the one symptom that still perplexes me is this;
Occasionally I get a tingling sensation in my lower abdomen, a few inches below my left hip. It never spreads, and is ALWAYS in the same spot. Sometimes it feels like a slight fullness, accompanied by an uncomfortable ticklish feeling.
It'll usually last an hour or two, and will make me urinate more frequently than usual, although I think that may be more of a mental reaction to the sensation, rather than a strong physical urge to go.
A few people told me that it's part of the IBS and I shouldnt be concerned about it, but if it happens to be an infection or parasite (perhaps Candida, or something of the sort?), or urologically related then I would definitely like to know. Also, if I did decide to pursue it, what kind of doc should I try to see 1st? A Gastro again, or maybe a urologist? If I suspect some kind parasite, what kind of doc is best to see?
Any thoughts or opinions are greatly appreciated,
Thanks alot.
