Leebie 3 & Minnietoy:.. what changed for you to be diagnosed again with IBD after a diagnosis of IBS? I have been diagnosed IBS but they are thinking it's now IBD..
I got very sick with stricturing & inflammation along with upper digestive severe inflammation and all the extra manif. kicked in with a bang(joint pain, headaches, kidney stones, constant UTIs, early menopause ect)..It went from mild cd to moderate cd with enough bad stuff going on to get a DX..I ended up with a blockage of the common bile duct going into my small intestines from gall stones with emergency surgery around that time..I did not heal and just got sicker and sicker..I had more tests and retests--I has CT'd to death and had abnormal blood work..I spent a few bad years that I am afraid of repeating but know it can happen..My symptoms before this were more IBS then 34 hit..I am 42 now..It was like a fast downward spiral, and I thought I was going to lose my mind!
