For the first few years of symptoms I refused to get a colonscopy done because I was so sure this was all psychosomatic hence IBS. It got so bad that I decided to get the colonscopy done and an upper GI. The doc found ulcers in my colon and I'm moreso at risk for Crohn's disease diagnosis. I have to go back to the hospital for more tests and I'm so scared now that I found out this isn't IBS anymore.So everyone, please, if not diagnosed properly with IBS, please take a chance on getting tested. Oh, and also I'd like to thank everyone for comforting me in my pseudo-IBS woes, it is really great to know that I'm not alone in these embarrassing intestinal probs.
