Hi im 43 been diagnosed about 7 years ago with IBS , saw gastologist and had a flex sigmoidoscopy biopsys all ok , my symptoms are
undigested food in motions
left side pain when in a bad phase
wind but not always
im a very anxious person with health anxiety and life basically losts happened through the years so my ongoing IBS is always present .
i have been back to see my gastro guy from time to time just to touch base for reasurance nothening further going on , blood tsts etc .
but this last few monhs iv felt more tired , more bloating , had a host of blood tests in april all ok although at one point slightly raised white count , but did return normal on next re test ..my symptoms have been over last 4 months
feeling slight temp , like fluy from time to time
aching limbs , fingers and toes
burning sensation on back from time to time
same as above all BM
and then last weekend i decided to try some gluten free bread to se if can help my IBS so i had 4 slices in totalin the day and got very bad indigestion , then following morning i had such bad right side pain i was in agony and felt tender , this passed in about and hour , my morning BM was darker than normal not back but alot lot darker .....set me into a panic ....the following day i had a similar BM although not all dark other was ok ...well as ok it is for me ...my tummy was ok but still a bit tender ...
from wednesday onwards things have settled down , except my anxiety is now so high (not helping ) i then googled BC and frightened myself as it mentioned maroon black colour stools , and now thinking about it maybe mine was maroon ....
today i went and was ok well as it can be , no dark or maroon no blood or bright blood so ...hoping it was just a blip ....
i did go and see my gastro man on thursday night and he said he wasnt alarmed from what i was saying , but will do poo inflamitory test to be sure ...i didnt mention the maroon colour as i didnt know about that always thought was black that was the scary one to check for , indeed he kept asking me was it black ..
so hear i am in a total panic thinking the worst ...i just wondered if anyone els has has similar or can just give me a little comfort as im so worried its BC and been missed all this time and now its got worse ...
thanks for listeing x
