Approx.2 yes ago sudden I set of diarrhea that lasted 9 wks. It was debilitating and stopped abrubtly. I presented with diarrhea again in Oct 2019 than continued. Had endoscopy/colonoscopy June 3 when new dx was made! Covid19 delayed scopes since centers were closed. Cannot find diets or food plans. Everything online points to Crohns/Ulcerative colitis plans. Is it likely IBS was misdiagnosis? Previous PCP had blood tested that was positive for likelihood of Crohns or colitis. On Budesonide but not in remission yet. Any suggestions?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

We cannot help you regarding diagnosis. But initial diagnoses can certainly change. Or you may have more than one diagnosis.

One thing we can help you with is dealing with your digestive distress now, until you can get further help. A website that can help you is from Kate Scarlata who specializes in digestive diseases. You can find her here (copy and paste link)


How long have you been on the medication? Have any symptoms lessened? We look forward to hearing back from you-
