Finally after being in A&E just before Christmas I've got a sigmoidoscopy for the end of the week. When the team at ambulatory care said potential IBD I was unsure when the gastroenterologist requested a sigmoidoscopy rather than a colonoscopy is this procedure what is used to diagnose IBD?
I am also borderline levels wise on an underactive thyroid so my GP says could this have anything to do with my symptoms? My body is feeling jittery inside and my breathing is very shallow and shakes if I breathe through my mouth currently holding my phone to type this it's shaking so much I'm struggling to type.
I'm so desperate to find out what's going on can anyone offer any advice?
