I've been diagnosed with both IBD and IBS. I never know which condition to blame at any given time, but they sure keep me running. :ylol:
The general practioner I first went to many years ago for a diagnosis, dismissed me away saying I had IBS....luckily I didn't stop with him, went on and found a specialist who paid attention to all the red flags when I told him my symptoms, family history (only siblings, one had a spastic colon, the other had an ulcerated colon).
