Hello. I am an 18 year old female. Around age 16, I developed diarrhea and abdominal pain. Went to GP, who referred to GI doctor. Had colonoscopy, which showed ulceration in duodenum, large intestine fine. Said it was GERD, and diagnosed IBS. I have recently became quite ill. I have lost on average 5-10 lbs a week for the last 3 weeks. Went to GP, who did blood work. Very anemic and high blood inflammatory markers. GP did calprotectin test. Just got results back, it was 900 something. Referred me back to GI doctor, who still believe it is IBS. Am I wrong to want to pursue this more?
