Finally Sarah, I'm glad that they finally got back to you. I'm glad that your scope looks good. Good thing she wants to check your small bowel as well. Good to rule everything out. I hope the meds help you. Please let us know when you find out about your appointment.

Oneday,

I am glad to hear that someone is trying to actually help you. Usually a small bowel study is not as conclusive as an EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy - longest word in the world, which essentially means that they are looking at your esophagus, stomach, and first part of the small intestine).   That is pretty much the "opposite" of a colonoscopy. 

If your colonoscopy was good to go, this might very well be a "functional" disorder that is not able to be imaged or biopsied...i.e., we don't know what exactly it is.  That is the case for most of the people that post on this site, so you shouldn't feel alone!

All that means is that medical science has not yet elucidated the source of your pain.  That doesn't mean it's not real pain that you are experiencing.  So they are not believing that you are "imagining" this pain.

I am sorry for the loss of your uncle.  Is your consultant a primary care physician?  Let us know how it goes.

While, yes, some doctors may think you are a hypocondriac, most are smart enough to recognize that having an ongoing illness is going to affect you mood. Why wouldn't you be depressed in this situation? I would be. A lot of people with cancer are referred to therapists--not because they're not in pain or not sick, but because they need help dealing emotionally with their illness. In some ways you are in even a worse boat because you have no name for your problem. The not knowing is even worse than the knowing in most cases.

I think you should definite seek the help of a therapist so you have someone else to talk to about your fears about going out, about people not believing that you are really ill and really in pain, about the loss of your uncle and about the loss of, essentially, your youth. They may not make you hurt less, but they may make you feel better emotionally, make you feel as if you can handle things better.
