Hello everyone, I'm new here and hoping someone can help.
I've had IBS for 7 years now and although it's a pain it's been under control, until the last few months where I've become really ill, resulting finally in an A&E visit last week. I'm being referred for a test for Crohn's, but when I asked my GP whether it could possibly be endometriosis I got told 'no probably not, it's just your IBS'. Whilst I'm sure this is true, I just wish someone would take me seriously and at least listen to my concerns!
I know the symptoms are similar and I'm sure it's 'just my IBS' but has anyone else had trouble get a doctor to refer them? I'm really struggling mentally with being told oh it's just IBS, especially when it's getting worse.
