So ive had IBS for about 3 to 2 1/2 years. I have always been skeptical of the diagnoses and have always had this deep feeling that its more than IBS. I can tell you that that constant doubt is what causes alot of stress and anxiety. In january of this year, i did have a strange new development. Dents in both thumb nails. and now it seems to be spreading to other nails. Now, i had a blood test and anemia, it came back negative. I do know that these dents are the sign of either an illness or malnutition once anemia has been ruled out. Does anyone know, what illness has IBS like symptoms but isnt IBS? Its an odd question. One thing that did come up, was an abnormal liver result, but my doctor said it was so minimal that he couldnt pin point it. It could just have been off that day the blood was taken sort of thing. Any ideas?

What tests did your Dr order to rule out other GI diseases? What are your GI symptoms?
