Reading over your messages, I nod my head in understanding. I too have a similar story. I stumbled upon a book called Digestive Wellness by Elizabeth Lipski which has provided me with amazing insights into my own health care. My GI doctor diagnosed me with IBS after talking to me for only 5 minutes. I have symptoms that are not associated with IBS and he did not do a thorough exam. Take your care into your own hands. It is the only way. I hope to soon have an accurate diagnosis and begin the road to recovery. Check out the book, Digestive Wellness, it is very informative and will help you discuss your symptoms/health care with your doctor. Good luck to all of you!
