I have had "IBS" for as long as I can remember. I cant finish a meal most days without my stomach cramping up in excruciating pain and having to run to the toilet with diarrhea. If I cant get to a toilet quick enough my whole body shivers and I sweat. I have pain constantly in my lower stomach predominantly on the left hand side and my hips on the left hand side often go numb. I have had 8 anal fissures in the space of 2/3 months as well, I've kind of got used to the pain now though. My stool usually contains a lot of mucus and is usually bright yellow but I do get colds a lot so this could contribute I suppose. I guess I'm just asking could this possibly be crohns disease? I have been tested for celiacs disease and when it came back negative I was sent on my way! Its really ruling my life. I cant go for meals with my friends and family because half way through my food I have to leave for 10 minutes to go to the toilet and they ask questions. Thank you for reading. I've made a doctors appointment anyway cos I'm really cracking down on this! But I'm just asking for your opinions.. *not sure if this is relevant but I have acid reflux, back spasms, dry sore eyes, stress urine incontinency, pcos, depression and am waiting on diagnostic laparoscopy to confirm endometriosis
