Good morning 😊
I wish to introduce myself, my name is Louise, I am 34yrs old and discovered I have psoriatic arthritis back in the year 2016.
I feel recently like I’m going slightly mad, or looked on as if I am being abit if a drama Queen ha! But can anyone give me any guidance around IBD? I had never heard of it, and when I recently approached my GP as I felt I had possible IBS for a very long time now, she felt it more likely to be IBD. I am due tests soon to find out, I just feel like since being informed of this bowel condition I have obviously done research into it, and there’s so many other symptoms cropping up that I have, like for the last 6months I have had ulcers on my tongue which I haven’t understood why? And also I have now discovered about tooth loss, I have had around 8teeth taken out now, and again never understood why as i look after my teeth. I’ve had a bad stomach for years now, and have discovered that if you have psoriatic arthritis, it tends to start in your organs firstly.
Apologies, this is long and probably abit sketchy, I’m just frustrated really and feel like I’m jumping to too many conclusions and pinning all this on possible irritable bowel disease when it may not be the case. Is there anyone who can help me? Has anyone else got IBD too? I’m not finding anything on the VersusArthritus site about this.
