Hi all, have struggled with accepting the IBS diagnosis as it’s so hard to believe that IBS can be so severe. I’ve tried all IBS medicines under the sun: mebeverine, peppermint oil, buscopan, silicol gel, probiotics, digestion tablets, charcoal tablets, citalopram, and finally amitryiptaline which I’m now at the highest possible dose for IBS. None have worked for me sadly. Have been tested for IBD, coeliac, and even endometriosis (because of the pain) and all negative. I don’t believe it is diet related as no matter what I eat, even if it’s a small amount, I flare up. Now on FODMAP but don’t have much hope. Are there any possible alternative diagnosis’?
