      Ultrasounds use 3D imaging so they can still show very accurate results.   CTs give more detailed imaging.

      I would ask your doctor to refer you to a gastroenterologist if your problems are abdominal.

    I had these issues since my teenage years i am now 39 and ive always been diagnosed with ibs ive had cameras scans etc and they never detected the real problem.. i was rushed to hospital 1 year ago with suspected appendicitis... it turned out my bowel had perforated... this was due to diverticulitis NOT ibs it was never ibs they just never picked it up... so personally i would suggest to your doctor that it might be worth checkimg for diverticulitis... i hope you get some amswers soon smile

      Hi , i was diagnosed with ibs in my early 20's but they got it wrong as it turned out i had diverticulitis which is a bowel condition that causes bloating .. pain .. loose stools and mucus in stools.. i found food affected it very much .. oily food ...processed food and corn and nuts .. mashed potato too would leave me with a poorly tummy within half an hour of eating .. and it made me depressed and anxious .. i have been told to be on a high fibre and high fluid diet .. i had most of my bowel removed due to the diverticulitis getting infected ... have you had a camera investigation?

      Yes .. it is a 'disease' that grows pockets of tissue on the bowel walls.. these can swell and cause perforation of the bowel .. they swell when they get infected... not enough research has been done still so not sure how it develops

    Forgot to add that my blood tests all came back satisfactory every time ... it seemed my disease laid silent.....or the doctors werent doing their jobs probably ...
