Hi all just after some advice or anyone with similar symptoms
For the last year ive had diarreah then constipation..
occasional blood when i wipe pain under my ribs and burning feeling in my upper adomen
Had a blood test in july last year and ultrasound which came back normal..i paid for a fecal occult blood test from a private lab which came back clear i was back and to to the drs and all they said was it was in my head!!! My last visit in october i went mad as i know something isnt right so then they agreed to send me to a gastroenterologist.
So far in dec ive had blood tests , fecal sample and an ultrasound.
Blood test shows borderline low vitamin d
fecal sample shows increased calprotectin 95
ultrasound was normal
Ive been reffered for a full colonoscopy next month of which im terrified ( i suffer anxiety and panic attacks so you can imagine how i feel !)
Has anyone else had the same symptoms as me that could give me any ideas of what this may be
