Fibro + IBS

Jun 06, 2016 12:03 AM

I'm just wondering if any of you who have Fibro, don't have IBS. I'm not diagnosed yet & I'm trying to figure things out on my own, as doctors don't seem to want to listen. All my other symptoms I have, are exactly the same as Fibro, except for IBS. I don't think I have it although my body is so filled up with codeine that it could be masking it.

Not everyone has all the symptoms of fibro. It's very possible that you haven't been hit by ibs yet. I definately have digestive issues with my fibro. Bad digestive issues. And what bothers my stomach seems to change daily

IBS was my first symptoms then possible carpel tunnel which turned out to be fibro. I found diagnosis and told Dr who seemed to agree then sent me to rheumatology who confirmed it 2009. Took a while tho.

I was dx with IBS in the 80's. Fibromyalgia came on board in 2007.

Yes I have stomach pain issues. Not sure if it's IBS but it's very debilitating. Seems like I can't get anything done when I feel so horrible. 😒
