Hello all, I was diagnosed over 5 years ago with IBS both C&D. I have had every test known to the medical world, you name it...CT's, Mri's,Bloodwork, upper and lower Gi series and on and on. Well, today I met a doctor at a wellness center whom I explained all this and more to him. All my tests came out just perfect, therefore I was diagnosed IBS. Come to find out, my muscles and central nevrvous system all connected to my spine were inflammed. Please for your own benefit, research for yourselves how each and every vertabrae effects certain organs within your body. I was absolutely stunned because it all made sense. your spine is like the rubber coating on an electrical wire. Let me give you the example he told me. He mentioned back to me "You have good days and bad days.. correct?" I said "yes that's true" He then mentioned well if everything else has been ruled out andthe Doctors cannot come to a spesific conclusion, that is when it is diagnosed as IBS. Which is exactly what I have experienced. He then gave me a chart of a spinal cord, with it showing each and every section leading towards a symptom... several vertabraes are directly connected to your intestines as well as your stomach. I then was examined and sure enough my muscles were all inflamed in those exact areas. Yes you got it... IBS can be caused by your mechanism and not by any organ defect!!! Your central nervous system is like the power supply of a computer. If you are trying to run a high end graphics card as well as a high end sound card,,,,bingo you get overload if it cant handle it. Any comments would be welcomed, but please look into it because after visiting this doctor it all made sense to me.
