Hi everyone. For nearly 3yrs I've suffered with IBS symptoms, I've been to a&e twice. I've had numerous scans and tests, everytime showing up as nothing wrong.
Feel like I've been punched in the face today, as my results from a capsule endoscopy came back clear, implying that its IBS, and there aren't any other tests to be carried out. I know that stress can make IBS worse, but I'm feeling really quite low (I'm currently on anti depressants), because I was hoping the results would show something that I could treat. Instead, i have IBS. No medication works for me, I'm currently on week 5 of a FODMAP diet and have seen next to no improvement. I feel completely screwed.
How can I live my life like this? It wouldn't be so bad if medication eased the pain. I've tried so many different remedies. Not sure how long I can cope with this IBS. Any words of advice?
