Hi, I have been ill since May and been into hospital twice with my stomach! I have bouts of diarrhea,stomach pain,nausea,leg pain and fatigue. I had a flexi sigmoidoscopy, which only looks at the last bit of the colon. They said it looked normal-no inflammation-so they said I had IBS.For about 2 months now I have been having sharp pains in my lower right side stomach-I wasnt experiencing them before,plus Ive been passing blood in my stool! I have lost weight once again and I've lost my appetite-but I dont have constant diarrhea! My doctor said that the early stages of crohn's are mistaken for IBS-I am just concerned because they haven't looked at my whole stomach. Has anybody been diagnosed with IBS when it was actually Crohns? One member of my family has crohns and another colitis-not immediate family though. Thanks!
