Hello All,  Well I am back!!  Did a week of testing at Cleveland Clinic..  Love all those tests.. Yuck!!  But they are the best and if I have anything else besides IBS they will find it..  I highley recomend that anyone that is not getting answers from you doctor try to go to Cleveland Clinic..   They are top notch..  They are caring and professional..  My doctor says IBS is a illness not just a catch all anymore..  My pain is real!!! Finally someone agrees with me..  Even if the tests show up nothing I feel validated..  After I get the results I will let you all know the verdict..  I told you before he gave me mirtazapine to try..  I have not yet was waiting for all the tests results first..  I used to wish that I had chrons but then being at the Cleveland Clinic and seeing the people with chrons I feel terrible for wishing I had such a terrible disease..  Anyway just thought I would update you guys..  Talk with ya soon... :-)

I'm glad that you went for answers Ryleigh even for just peace of mind. I hope the results are okay and even if they aren't that you will have something that can be treated and bring you back some quality of life. Let us know when you get the results.

Take Care

Welcome back! Glad you found a great doc you are happy with. :-)
Don't feel bad about wishing you had Crohn's... I think we all wish something would show up on the tests we went through. That way it would validate what we feel and all those docs wouldn't think it was just in our head. And also because we hope there is something the docs can do to fix it. Perfectly normal.
Anyway, best of luck to you on the results. Keep us posted.
