I've had IBS symptoms for about two years, and in October things got incredibly bad. In the mornings I'd try to get up and go to school, but I felt terrible, I was barely able to sit through classes eventually just not going. I was going to the doctor probably twice a month, every time getting a new kind of antacid, and finally I just broke down. I didn't know what to do, I stopped hanging out with my friends, going places, I lost a lot of weight because I'd eat and I would get sick, if I didn't eat I'd feel sick. So finally I went to see the Pediatric GI Specialist and I just finished swallowing the barium, eating isotopes, drinking the FLEET to prep for the colonoscopy/endoscopy. Ruling out Crohns and everything, my doctor diagnosed me with IBS. By some miracle my new high school counselor has Crohn's and she has been incredibly supportive the entire time, she's been through everything, and understands what I'm going through, but right now she's talking about getting a 504 for my IBS, because she has one for her Crohns, but I'm not sure if I'm eligible. Does anyone have any information on this?

I was also tested for Crohns and told that was my problem for around two years. I have just been told it's IBS and my doctor wants me tought at my house to reduce my stress. I'm going to get a 504 most likely. Good luck.
