I'm being sent to see a Gastroenterologist in May to try and diagnose me.
My symptoms are:
Constipation (usually have a bowel movement every 3 days on average).
Stomach pain (usually a dull ache everyday,around my navel or lower abdomen.Some flare up of cramps about once a month).
Weight lose of about 6lbs but weight is now stable.Can't tolerate fatty foods .
I've only had diarrhoea twice in 4 months which goes after 24 hours.
No blood on stools or vomiting.
I did have frequent stomach bugs last year that shown up as infections in my bloodtests.
I'm going to try and pay for a capsule endoscopy to check all of my digestive system (if the Gastro recommends it).
I'm a little concerned if it'll be IBD instead of IBS.I know they symptoms can be different but I've read so much conflicting information I'm now so confused!
What do you guys think?
