I hope you are feeling better by now... just wanted to wish you luck. There are times when I wish I had gone to the ER after a few nights of D in a row. I was so weak but like you I was hesistant to go to the ER.
I think you should go to look for a new GI, you seem to need more care right now and your current one is not available enough.
Let us know how you are.
Diagnosed w/ Crohn’s Disease March 2007 On Azathioprine (generic Imuran), Pentasa, & ENTOCORT
Diagnosed w/ Fibromyalgia May 2007 also on Soma
Also have Arthritis, and feel like I am falling apart sometimes...
Glad to hear you are better! Sometimes some IV hydration and pain meds, and/or anti nausea meds are all that is needed to help ride out a flare.
For anybody going to ER, make sure you know what is in the IV they hook up to you. When my daughter went to ER the second time, she was given Cipro via IV without her knowledge or consent. She found out it was Cipro only after they had already administered it to her.
