Hi everyone, i need your help! So I was diagnosed with IBS about 7yrs ago, I have never agreed with the diagnosis, I think I have something else, but all my symptoms points to IBS, I have the one with diarrhea and i have such severe abdominal pain It feels like im giving birth. Well several moths ago I started have these weird symptoms...my eyelids would start to burn and to swell up and looking red, i cant put anything on without it burning or stingy, and this has been happening several times a mth since like oct, and now my lips will start itching and next thing i know they are swollen, the inside of mu mouth and tongue start to burn and turn red. none of the symptoms happen at the same time, and today a new one...i woke up with hives all over my body...i went to the doctor the other day before my last symptoms and he said i had a severe vitamin D-3 defiency- not associated with IBS but it is associated with other auto immune disorders. i dont know what to do because i think I was wrongly diagnosed and it seems like no one can help. Any going through this?

crstar...thanks for the info, i did look at the lupus and i'm looking for an immunologist...i'm done dealing with my gastroentorologist because i dont feel he's done enough to help. today is my second day with the hives and the benadryl only takes them away for a few hrs then they are back, today i also woke up with tenderness on my right side under my rib cage. and even though im trying not to freak out, i can't help it. friday I have an appointment with my pcp who is also a pulmonary specialist and we will see what he says. i know is not an allergic reaction because i havent changed anything or eaten anything that i normally would not eat.
