With ibs do you have pain on the left side and it goes over to and above the pelvic area.

I have pain mostly on the left side along with constapation. It will sometimes travel over to the right side but not often. Is that common.

How many of you have pain every day?

I wouldn't say I have a flare up everyday or extreme pain, but I definitely do have abdominal discomfort at least 6/7 days of the week. I'm new to this diagnosis and am just trying to figure out what is common/normal for this.
Any information/testimonies would be great
