I've been suffering with 'ibs d' for a while now. Last year I had colonoscopy which showed there was inflammation in my colon. I thought great , I might be given some medication to control this.
When I went to the follow up gastro appointment at hospital I was told 'it's ibs, look in to fodmap diet' and I was sent on my way.
For the last year I have tried every combination of diet I can think of without good results. I've tried all the ibs medications and still I have this constantly active bowel.
I've asked the nurses/ doctors at my local surgery what was the inflammation? I thought ibs did not cause inflammation. They don't give me an answer.
I can't help thinking that maybe colitis medication could help me. Have I been misdiagnosed. Could I have colitis?
Sorry to waffle on, I'm just really bewildered and frustrated.
Any advice would be very welcome.
