I went to a doctor the other day to finally figure something out. I was definitely diagnosed with either IBS or IBD. Or both. He said I have a lot of inflammation in my duodenum, intestines, and colon. This was pretty obvious to me because my abdomen has been distended for about a year now. He said my nutrient uptake is extremely low and this is why I am losing weight.
Heres the weird thing, I thought IBS and IBD usually associated with diarrhea, pain, and bleeding. I have none of this at all! This is why I was surprised to hear I have it. I have constipation and bad digestion, fatigue, brain fog, muscle aches, weight loss, and more.
I have been on these forums posting in adrenal fatigue, candida, thyroid, and more thinking these were my problems. My question is, can IBS or IBD lead to these? Im assuming yes. And also, why havent I been experiencing pain, bleeding, diarrhea if I have IBS and IBD?
