Exclamation Not sure it is IBS

After a colonoscopy and endonoscopy, several blood tests, testing for lactose intollerance and celiac deisease the doctors have decided I have IBS. I feel they have given up and are using this as an easy out.
My symptoms are as follows:
- Diahhrea after eating
- Vomiting after eating at least 3 times a week
- Bloated abdomen
- Swollen fingers
- bruising not going away on legs
- nausea
- Mucusy stools

These symptoms occur every day. I eat fairly healthy. I am 22 year old female, 5'6 and 118 lbs. Please HELP! This has been going on for a year and a 1/2 now and nothing has been figured out!

Re: Not sure it is IBS

Not really sure if that is IBS or not. My 23 year old sister was just diagnosed with IBS as well she has had this ongoing for a year and a half (the whole time she was in Iraq) her symptoms are bloating, bleeding instead of a bowel movement, constant cramping, and when she tries to do a bowel movement she can be on the toilet for an hour and nothing happens. She is on a very strict diet...NO dairy, NO soda, NO red meat....basically she eats salads, drinks capri sun(the only thing that doesn't kill her stomach),lots of fruits and veggies...hopefully you find out if that is definitely what is wrong, and hope this helps a little..

Re: Not sure it is IBS

IBS can be over dx'ed I think. Yours sounds "worse" than what I dealt with, but not sure it's IBS.

My doctor said I had it, because I was often constipated, but when I improved my diet it got much better.
