Hi, I have been diagnosed with IBS for 5 years but last year my symptoms got worse so I went back to the doctor who recommended stool and blood tests. Both CRP and FCP were high (28, 253). I was referred to a gastro specialist. A few months later I had a consultancy appointment where I explained my symptoms, doctor asked for repeat CRP and FCP and they again came back high (29, 260). My blood test was always normal though. I had an ultrasound where the doctor found inflammation in the ileum but the test was not too definitive because the picture wasn't the clearest but he still reported the findings back to the consultant that my ileum was showing inflammation. Symptoms wise I always have a mushy or watery stool that comes very fast, I have a lot of yellow/white mucus but I only have blood in small amounts when I wipe nothing as bad as what some people have. I always have a terrible lower backache after going to the toilet and abdominal pain about 24/7.
I've got a colonoscopy and MRI also scheduled but I would like to know if people had a similar diagnosis experience and how it turned out.
