Sarah,

Can you get another dermy to see you? If so, I would recommend seeing another doc. The fact that this doctor barely looked at you and admitted that you had positive results but says nothing wrong is definitely disturbing. I hope you can get in to see something else. If tests are positive, that means there is something there. I sure hope you can get some answers soon.

Take Care

And to think that GB was recently ranked above the US in terms of medical care and overall health. Of course, plenty of people here have had doctors pull that same sort of thing with them; guess you can get a bad doctor anywhere. :-(

I'd let my GP know ASAP that the dermie didn't examine me, said my test results were indeed positive, but that that didn't indicate any problem, and that he gave me a script for medicine I already have that's not working, and blamed the rash on acne (like even a GP couldn't have noticed the difference--I'm sure if you had "just acne" the GP would have said so. The GP needs to either get you another doctor or come down on that one like a ton of bricks.

i am giong to make a apiontment to see gp next week as i am hvaeing my coonscopy done tomomrow and hvae to travel to another hostipal for it. i was told i shuold be takeing a medication caled metformin for my pcos. gyne i sa\w wuoldnet precribe it and gp was woreid abuot ibs being worse. to be honset i donet care if it is as i aleardy suffer most days wiht it. waht differnce can it make to my bowels. bascialy i was told thta the pcos wonet kill me but diabetes will and as i alraedy hvae prolbems wiht my blood sugar levels thne i need it to control thta.

god the meds thta i hvae been given for the colonscopy are disgusting. not like i needed to take thme as the last few dyas i hvae been bad. i got just one more lot to take later. i am dreading later as i am staying in a hotel for the nigth as my family donet drive and i canet get to the hosptial in morning. just hope i donet need the toilet on the way! lol. the thnigs i will do to get a nigth away!

i am geting on ok wiht the mental healht unit. my key wroker has reffered me to see a psycologist but thta wonet be for a while. she is watching me closely and spends time talking to me so at laset she ishelping. my councilor thta i am seing has helpped as well. she siad she is giong to go over some relaxsation technics wiht me over the next few weks so thta will come in handy.

Metformin is for diabetes; my husband takes it. As far as I'm aware, it's never given him any problems, but then he's practically normal anyways. Since it's going to be impossible for you to control your blood sugar through diet--as there are so many things you can't eat (or have to eat) for your gut, that's probably the way to go. Although I hear that 30 minutes of exercise a day is supposed to do wonders on the blood sugar. If you could afford to get yourself a treadmill and worked on getting in 30 minutes of walking on it a day, that might be enough to help your blood sugar. Cinnamon has also been shown to lower blood sugar; my husband noticed a drop of about 10 points when he started putting it in his coffee every morning. Obviously you can't do coffee, but maybe you can make cinnamon toast? I think you're supposed to do 1/4 teaspoon a day to get benefits. Red pepper and other hot spices are also good for diabetes as well, but obviously you can't do those either.

hi i hafd my scope yesturday. thye didnet find anythnig. thye still donet know why i bleed. i was jsut told thta it is ibs and thta i am stressed. i am raelly fed up as the resaon for seeing new gi was to get some help wiht some new meds but now i hvae found out thta becuase my scope was noraml i am not giong to see gi agian thye apperntly write to yuo wiht the rsults whchi i was told. it just seems like if it is not life therthing thne thye donet want to know. so now i am stil in the same position as before. i canet hack any of thsi. i am not sure waht i am giong to do now. where i go form here. i guess i am fed up wiht giong thuogh all these tests and thne nothnig ever gets donet. i found the scope ok a little bit pian ful as thye woulndt give me mcuh sedation as i had a bad reactoin to anestic. i slept for abuot three days after it. so i saw it all and felt it all. i was told thta i would be sedated so i wouldent know anythnig abuot it.

i feel like i hvae gone ruond in a big circle and now hvae ended up back wehre i strated wiht all the same prolbems. i am worreid abuot the amount of piankillers i take to control the pian. thye canet be good for me. i donet bother taking the buscopan any more as it doesnet do anythnig.

how do yuo guys cope wiht ibs? i feel like i canet and donet get any surport from gp or consultant. i feel let down by nhs.

Can your GP get you a camera pill test? Perhaps you are bleeding higher up in the colon than the scope can reach. I've heard that can happen with Crohn's sometimes--which can actually cause ulcerations anywhere along the entire GI tract.
