Strange question, but in the eternal search for trying to find connections with other IBS patients, I thought about blood work. I am sure there are other doctors who have gone down this avenue already, but may I ask...are your stats completely in the normal range?For example, for the last few years, my red blood count has been out of range on the high end, and my white blood count out of range on the low end. I have no viruses whatsoever--have had my sedimentary rate checked at least four times in the last year (especially when I am sick) and it is normal. So I know that I do not have an auto-immune disorder. However, perhaps this has something to do with IBS? Or perhaps not and I am grasping at straws because I am sick of grasping toilet paper. Perhaps....Anyone else care to divulge?
