random diarrhea

hi everyone! this is my first time here. i’ve had ibs for years and only ever suffered with constipation but suddenly had a huge spout of wind and pain and after hours of that pain i had diarrhea/loose stools. is this normal? could this be my ibs? or do you think the cramps themselves caused the diarrhea?
thank you!!!!
