Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include dietary causes, GI / infections, inflammations, malabsorption syndromes, micronutrient deficiencies, IBS, stress/ anxiety, hormonal/ endocrine issues etc. With the description this does not typically sound like IBD. The diagnosis of an IBD is bases on clinical features and investigations such as colonoscopy and biopsy etc. I would suggest consulting a primary care physician or a gastroenterologist for a detailed evaluation of your symptoms. After a specific cause is identified, a management plan can be drafted accordingly.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
