I'll be 27 on Tuesday and was diagnosed last week after years and years of GI symptoms (my mother always remembers how when I was in kindergarten, the school would call that I was sick and needed to go home, so she would come get me and I would get home, go to the bathroom, and suddenly feel better...so GI symptoms for pretty much my entire life).
