Abbreviation does not clarify things, but I would say that Irritable Bowel Syndrome is different from Inflammatory Bowel disease like Crohn's disease that has inflammation of the bowels. EGD and colonoscopy being done suggest you were evaluated by a gastroenterologist and they had biopsies done that could help in diagnosis. You may want to see a second opinion if you still have no relief given tim
