- I have had 'ibs' for years (I use quotes coz never had any tests just fobbed off) but started having diarrhoea about two years ago. Randomly had d. Every day for a month for no reason when I'd never had it before. Dr's checked for infection and it was negative so told me to ride it out. Since then I've had random bouts of diarrhoea that can be one episode for one day or many episodes lasting weeks. I have had one more month long episode, and things have become more frequent over the last 2 years.
I am currently in the worst flare ever- it's lasted 4months. I have been in the gp twice and out of hours gp twice in agony. All think it's crohns. Faecal inflammation test was 235. Had a colonoscopy last week and have had cronic diarrhoea since with no sign of it stopping. They couldn't complete my colonoscopy as my bowel was too loopy- they couldn't get past the splenic flexure. They said they're gonna do a ct next but I thought you could only diagnose crohns from colonoscopy?
