I am really grateful for this site. I have been on here for a while just reading
and finally got the nerve to register. Just a quick rundown, I have been sick
since 2002, alot of nausea, rashes that itch like crazy, my wrists, elbows, shoulders
and back hurt so bad.
I still don't have a diagnoses but from what I have been reading on here this is
the closest thing to what I have except for the weight loss I was just told by a
family member the other
day that my uncle had crohn's disease...I don't know why this was'nt brought up
sooner. I guess no one thought that was pertinent. I also left out the bouts of D in
my earlier symptoms.
I am taking phenergan alot to try and make the nausea stop. I had my gallbladder taken
out in 2006 but that did'nt help, I really don't think that was the problem but oh well. Anyhow
I have been feeling like crap for about a month again now, called my GI several times but
can't get a call back and I am getting tired of this, so I guess it's time to change GI's.
If anyone knows a good GI in the Louisville, KY metro I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

I got my diagnosis 2 years ago when I still lived in Lou. I really liked my dr, I am dying that i can't remember her name. It was a woman...Leslie something?? Seems like it started with an L.

Maybe that will give you a starting point anyway. We moved to another state right after my dx, but I did really like her and felt comfortable with her and the staff in her office. I haven't found a GI that I liked as well since.

Sorry for your health troubles, hope you get it all straightened out.

thanx for the reply, I have been dealing with this since 2002, probably longer. I hope it's not CD
but I would be really relieved if the docs could find something. I am really tired of the D and the
constipation with the pain. I don't know how much phenergan one should take before it becomes
unsafe but that is about the only thing that helps the nausea. Also taking hydrocodone for the pain
in my joints and my back, really stinks. Hey noodlebugs just been googling GI's in the louisville area and could it be Lesley Campbell MD on Dutchman's Lane. thanx for everything.
