Not only have I been dealing with an IBSD flare whuch I feel sure is caused by the stress I have been under due to a botched cataract surgery, this morning I woje up with cheeks that look like a sunburn. I have been to the Dr and had bloodwork and stool sample but nothing found. Anybody ever had this cheek flushing thing.

      I just went to the Dr last week and all she did was put me on probiotics and gsve me something for indigestion. I have had this off and on for a while but just never this bad.

      the dr doesn't say anything?  probiotics shouldn't have done that but they are not giving you any other medicine for ibsd?  i don't understand that i would look into another dr

      My Dr wants me to schefule a colonoscopy to rule out other problems and I do have an appt with a Dr for that. If i dont get some answers I will be looking for another Dr. I live in a small town so we dont gave many Drs. But I will make the drive to Houston if necessary.

    Stress and anxiety can cause flushing from your neck upwards; I have had this and it feels as if your skin is crisping.
