Hey guys Im new & hoping someone out there can offer me some advice as I am at my wits end. I have been having bowel issues for around 18 months, Recurrent Diarrhea, LOTS of mucus with some small amounts of blood occasionally & left sided cramps before & during movements which have gradually been getting worse. Been back & forth to my Dr. Blood tests are fine, Had 2 calprotectin tests (both were borderline just above 60,), Had a colonoscopy in Jan, All looked good & healthy but biopsys taken showed some mild inflammation. Been to Docs again this week & been perscribed imodium (again) I'v been having a 'flare' for a couple weeks now, Im currently going to toilet 4/6 times a day on average, The pains are so bad, I feel sickly & Im so tired & just really lacking energy. .
I should add my mother was diagnosed with colitis in her early 30's (I'm 32) & both my parents have had bowel cancer, ( My mum currently is going through treatment & my father passed away 2 years ago) so bowel problems are not unknown to us. Basically my doctors aren't given me any answers anymore & I just don't know where to go from here, My pains have been more severe recently & the tiredness is a new symptom. I'm currently awaiting a referral appointment back to my specialist. I guess I'm just looking for advice & experience from other sufferers to what is going on with me for sure, Or if theres any other tests I should be asking about. Thanks for any advice!
