Patient :I'm 18 years old and for the past 6 months I have been suffering with sickness and diarrhea. I have to go to the toilet roughly 7 times a day.The pain is terrible and I end up fainting when it gets bad.It has got so bad I don't live a normal life any more. I've had to drop out of college because of this. The doctors have took many blood tests but all that's been found is my inflammatory markers have been raised and I'm waiting to see a surgeon to get a colonoscopy. I have no idea what is going on and I'm scared which isn't helping at all. Any idea what it could be?
