So I've had IBS for many years but last 6 months it's got so much worse. Been doing elimination diet for a couple of months cutting out everything blood tests said I was intolerant too but it's made no difference. I get daily weird pains/discomfort/feelings in my stomach that make me feel generally unwell and give me headaches. GP wants me to have a colonoscopy/endoscopy in a few weeks to eliminate possibility of anything sinister going on but I'm petrified as I suffer with medical anxiety and last time I had one a few years ago it was very painful and they had to stop and do another procedure instead (like a virtual colonoscopy or something). I'm not sure I can even go through with this but don't know what to do as I'm sick and tired of feeling sick and tired and just can't seem to get my gut under control and can't remember the last time I had a relatively "good" day
