    Hi @stephenlee :) a warm welcome to our community. How are you doing today? A lot of people here also contend with ailments. I for instance have Crohn's disease and ADHD. I hope this becomes a place you can talk about and share your own experiences!
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with

    That does indeed sound like fun times! I didn't actually know you could have IBS and IBD at the same time. Well, I had IBS before my Crohn's Disease symptoms started, so maybe I do have them together? I thought a diagnosis of IBD 'overrode' the IBS :P

    Yeah I didn't either until my recent hospital visit last month when my crohns was flaring. They were treating my crohns and had it under control with steroids but was still in alot of pain and getting cramps, so they said I had IBS too and put me on this medication for it. (Mebeverine) and started taking that and the pain went so on this medication regularly now.
