hey there. I am not looking for a diagnoses just some opinions and maybe some stories.
I am 31 years old and have had IBS (self diagnoses) for as long as I can remember. I have painful abdominal pain (80%) and then urgent BM. My stools sometimes are D but mainly just loose not watery. No blood.
I'm wondering if this can be celiac or UC or what?
Your opinions please.
I am not able to see dr yet. Waiting for my medical to kick in.

WEll, you can see if you have any improvement by eliminating gluten from your diet...if yes, then once your medical kicks in, you can have that checked.

How many bms are you having per day?

Curious what your diet is like basically....

Do you drink or consume any artificial sweeteners?

Welcome to the forum.

You might also want to check into the IBS forum on this site...maybe more answers there.
