I'm new to the IBS community. Just looking for some advice.
In 2014 I had an ultrasound scan, an MRI and a colonoscopy. All of the tests came back inconclusive as the bowel prep didn't work for any of the tests. There were possibilities of Crohn's, bowel cancer etc. They put it down to IBS simply because all tests were inconclusive. I have tried every single medication that is recommended for IBS but nothing seems to have any effect at all.
Have been living for the pain for the past 2 years until a couple of weeks ago when the pain, sickness and diarrhoea got all too much (I'm away from home at university too so it's not the best time!). Doctor gave me some antisickness medication and Immodium to try and help. Antisickness tablets haven't had any effect at all. I'm going to the toilet to pass stools at least 3 times a day at the moment, sometimes diarrhoea and sometimes normal. Buscopan isn't having any effect either. I also get blood at least once a week, on the paper after a poo. Went to urgent care at the doctors yesterday and he seemed totally unconcerned about the whole thing and prescribed me anti-depressants.
I can't sleep through the night because of the pain and it's really getting me down at the moment. I'm just looking for some advice. Shall I try and get the scans redone to see if they find anything? I have no idea what to do anymore!
Sorry for the long post but I just wanted to get it off my chest to people who understand! Thank you
