New to board-Will colonoscopy tell me if I have IBS?


Does anyone know if a colonoscopy will diagnosis IBS? I have been having really bad trouble with hemmorrhoids and diarrhea approximately every ten days after I eat. Any information about IBS greatly appreciated.

well colonoscopy is to look for serious stomach problems like inflamatory bowel or diverticules and such that could be the cause of your cramping/diarreah/constipation. If they dont find anyserious problem that could be causing for your stomach symptoms then the diagnosis is IBS. Thats the frustating thing about ibs diagnosis cause you think "why in the hell I feel such like crap and they don't find anything wrong in the colonoscopy" ~sigh~
