Tested for H. pylori which were negative. He put me on Nexium tablets - proton pump inhibitors for hyperacidity. I asked about IBS and he said that is mainly psychological and that it could be Crohn's
It contradicted what my doctor said regarding the Crohn's and IBS and I just wanted another opinion. I have to get colonoscopy done but can't at the moment cause I'm breastfeeding and the prep will affect my milk supply.
I get severe abdominal pain accompanied by diarrhea with a lot of mucus and spots of dark red blood at least twice a week, which doesn't appear to be related to food. I seem to have almost constant dull ache in left lower abdomen. When I get my period I bleed bright red blood from my anus as well (I know this cause I wear tampons which don't leak) My mum has celiac's and my grandmother died of bowel cancer. I'm just worried, sorry I didn't mean to offend you
