Hi guys, just had my colonoscope done, it was absolutely fine and I had sedation to relax me, the worst bit is the prep! if anyone was worried about their's. anyway the results came back normal and have been put down ibs.

I still feel my symtons are worse to just have IBS. I was wondering if anyone knows of more tests or something I could try and find out more of what's going on.

Thank you

    You could try taking wheat or dairy out of your diet x read up on low fodmap diet x it's not easy, it's a way of life but does work x

    Anxiety goes hand in hand with IBS. I too couldn't believe there was "nothing seriously wrong with me" after a colonoscopy

    I changed my diet by reducing carbs and the gp prescribed me an anti-depressant. I was dead against it at the beginning but I must say it has worked for me.
