Please welcome your new moderator Andie! She will be your new moderator on this board starting Monday. I've worked with her for a while now and I know that she will be able to help you with your digestion questions!
Take care everyone and I'll see you on the Pets board!
I'm sorry you are ill. As much as you may want to get diagnosed, it's not possible over the internet. You may want to get a second opinion if your doctors are unable to help you. Please use the WebMD search engine to read about second opinions including Second Opinions are Welcome .
Please also look up your medications that you've mentioned by clicking on the Find a Drug link to read about them.
I wish that you could be diagnosed over the internet, but it's just not possible. What you can do is get copies of all of your medical records to see a doctor who will help you find the answers you are seeking.
Your post brings up an important topic that comes up here and that is doctors who aren't listening to their patients. You know your body better than anyone else so if you feel the need to get a second opinion and find a doctor who will listen to you please do so.
Second Opinions are Welcome is an archived blog post where Dr Bill Lloyd discusses eye and vision problems and why getting a second opinion is important. It applies to everyone, not just eye problems though.
You've brought up some good points here. If your doctor isn't listening to you then it's time to listen to your inner feelings and find a new doctor. You know your body better than anyone else and so if you feel the need to get a second opinion and find another doctor who will listen to you, go for it!
WebMD has a lot of articles about seeking second opinions , but one of my favorites is from an archived blog by Dr Bill Lloyd. He's writing about eye and vision problems but his blog about second opinions is applicable to everyone! Please click on the link: Second Opinions are Welcome
