I have IBS and recently have been experiencing a red face, swollen lips andmy hands go numb when I have a bowel movement. It's frightening and would like to know if this is a symptom of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
I am 50 years old.
Thank you!

Thank you! i suggest you read about CARCINOID rare and very difficult to diagnose . disseminated carcinoma-like cells in digestive system they produce hormons what can cause red face but it can be something else / dont worry in andvance too much / go to you doctor and ask for tests/ dont postpone it .good luck.dora
