I should know this answer myself after years of CD, but I plead pregnancy brain. Can you have inflammation, even if it is microscopic, and only have IBS and not something else? I always thought inflammation meant the IBS Dx was wrong.
My husband has been labeled IBS, but I just don't buy it with inflammation showing from his biopsy. He's sick more than I was when I was in flares. I can't really judge it though b/c I get C not D, and really just suffer from strictures and obstructions. He doesn't want to see my GI who is amazing b/c he doesn't think he is sick enough to see an expert. His IBS Dx makes no sense and he doesn't improve even with diet changes or reduced stress. He cycles in and out of illness. His family always just said he had a weak stomach and that the fact that he was rail thin was just genetic.
I'll take any info/advice, especially something that will convince him to see my great GI.
