Hey guys I’m new here and have been struggling with Chrons\IBS . I’ve had the colo and endoscopy, doc says it looks good. Pretty regularly I’ll wake up in the middle of the night with a pounding migraine accompanied by cramps the turn into nausea then I end up vomiting etc. My doc says it’s IBS but everywhere I’ve looked for info on symptoms points me to Chrons . I’m almost positive it’s chrons . What’s the difference between IBS and Chrons ? Should I get a second opinion ? And I have a sorta high stressful job. Does stress make it worse?

IBS and Crohns are different yes.  Are you taking medications for your issues?  I was on Entyvio for a while but it gave me some of the worst migraines I've ever had in my life.

Stay hydrated, take multi vitamins, and try to lessen your stress by working out or meditating.

You need to find the “thought leader” Gastroenterologist in your area. The doctor the other docs consult with. He can give you the answers you need.
