Hi, I’m new here but just looking to put my mind at ease.
Over the last couple of months I’ve had full blood tests and a sample for calprotectin, initially to confirm whether or not I had IBS. I had been taking probiotics which helped for a while and also buscopan but my symptoms started to worsen. Two of my bloods came back, ESR at 47 and CRP at 29, calprotectin at 305. I’m now being referred to gastro for further tests, assuming a colonoscopy? This absolutely terrifies me, both the procedure and the thought of what they might find... can anyone share similar experiences, and how things panned out? I really am so scared, I’m not usually a poorly person so finding all of this difficult to deal with. Also, can anyone tell me what caused them to develop this condition?
