I have been suffering with symptoms for almost a year that are worsening .
- pain above belly button
- 3/4 bowel movement a day that are urgent. Not diarrhoea but semi formed like mushy?( sorry!) no blood but sometimes mucus.
- extremely tired. Heavy and tired legs especially. General stiffness including hands. Often hard to get out of bed and perform at work.
Sometime i feel like i get 'flare ups' . Where even more bowel movements and more tiredness.
- endoscopy in jan showed inflammtion of oesophagus due to acid reflux. I queried the cause as i have never had heartburn!
- faecal calprotectin was positive but a low positive. Dr said was too high for ibs but not high enough for it to be ibd. Could i just be sensitive to inflammation?
Have minimal gluten and diary . So far nothing has helped and doctors aren't trying to find the cause. Feel I need a colonoscopy. Any help or
Insight would be appreciated!
