My doctor has decided I must have Crohn's. I will be doing tests next year, but in the mean time I just have to wait. At first, I was told it was probably IBS (I've had problems for a few years now). My new doctor said my symptoms sound more like Crohn's and less like IBS? What's the difference? I've had some D (not much)alot of abdominal pain and spasming. Certain foods like potatoes, eggs, or red meat make things worse. Sounds like IBS to me! How can he say he thinks it's Crohns? What symptoms do I have that are more Crohns and less IBS? Can anyone provide me with any insight? In the meantime, I do like having "Crohn's" as opposed to and "Irritable Bowel". Sad as it is, it's less embarassing and seems to be taken a little more seriously!
