Ok everyone, Here I was, thinking I'd been misdiagnosed...when I first joined this forum, I read about symptoms of IBD, and felt as though the first diagnosis of IBS was mistaken. The smells, is just one I can think of off-hand (I'm still adjusting to new meds, and my mind was already gone, so please bear with me). Anyway, I've read a few topics this morning, and am confused. Would anyone mind helping me with the differences? I think that next week, I'm going back to my new PCP & asking for a 2nd opinion, and new GI. The one I have is nice, but she & I have trouble communicating well. That's no good as I know we all know. But in the mean time, HELP?!
Also, I'm having bad trouble with my appetite, I have NONE again, and since I recently started on the Asacol, my stomach gets soooooo upset, and I get sooooo sleepy, with the nods, & fog I only get about 6 hours of mostly clearheaded thinking...will this ease up? How long? Everyone's worried I'm depressed or something, and even though that is plausible, I believe it's the new meds...Any input out there?
Thank you all!
