How to know if its ibs or something else?

For years now I've suffered with irregular and weird bowel movements.
A lot of the time I try to go and nothing happens, and I wipe and mucus is on the tissue. Also, mixing in horribly is anxiety,
Anxiety does NOT mix with my bowel problems well, and in fact, possibly makes it worse.
What could I do to deal with my problems,
What are some possible explanations
On some days, I dont eat that much and it causes more problems,
like if I don't eat, it makes it worse, but when I do eat it still feels uncomfortable...
What is some advice
