I have just had the worst hospital experience ever. I am anemic. I ended up going to the emergency room because my resting heart rate is around 130. When I stand up, it jumps to 150 or 160. I was also dehydrated, even though I have been drinking plenty of fluids. I have been having lots of rectal bleeding. I was admitted to the hospital, and the GI doctor performed a colonoscopy, but could find no active sites of bleeding. So now he and my PCP pretty much think I am telling stories about my bleeding. They discharged me from the hospital. I am still anemic, bleeding, and my heart rate is down to only around 115 resting. What am I supposed to do? I actually questioned whether or not I am crazy and just imagining I am bleeding. My PCP offered for me to see a psychiatrist. When I asked her if I wasn't bleeding, then why was I so anemic. She actually asked me if I was having anal sex (I'm not, I don't think anyone with a history of distal colitis would want to do this), or if I was making myself throw up. They don't seem to care to find out where all the blood is coming from. I actually made my boyfriend look in the toilet after I went to the bathroom just to make sure I wasn't seeing things. He said there was definitely blood there (what a keeper, lol). Anyway, what am I supposed to do? I am so unbelievably frustrated. They also took me off all my meds and said I don't have inflammatory bowel disease.
