IBS is not serious in terms of being life-threatening, but the severity of symptoms depends on the person.  It can range from very mild to severe.

It can seriously disrupt your day. Make your stomach hurt and cramp badly. It can be painful. Youmay need to see a dr or if it is stress related get tht worked out.

if you find it difficult to manage the symtoms (symptoms), it greatly affects your social life ,i'm sure you must have consulted a doctor, you can also try yoga it helps your mind to relax and stay positive you are not alone.
