Boy oh boy, what a year.
I have been suffering intensely with stomache pain since Dec 2007. I have been in and out of the ER with severe pain, now radiating into my shoulder blades and entire right shoulder/back. I can only cry from the pain.
In the past year I have had 2 colonoscopies, 2 endoscopies, 2 ultrasounds, 2 CT scans, blood work, a barium enema and several X Rays. Everyone tells me everything is completely normal.
I can only go to the bathroom with an enema twice a week. My stool is hard like bricks, I am in pain.
I have missed days of university and teachers college at a time because of the pain.
My GI doctors and GP are not coordinating. The paperwork never seems to reach the doctors it needs to.
Everyone tells me I am not an urgent/emergency case.
How do I get someone to listen to me?
I have a HIDA Scan Dec 22 and a CT scan Dec 29.
My anorectal mamatry test is March 9 and the followup with that GI won't happen unless the test results warrant one.
When the doctors cannot find an answer, they thinks its my bipolar and ask me if I am stressed or if anything is bothering me because it will make my pain tolerance worse.
Well, I was 6 months premature, have had several surgeries, my pain tolerance is pretty good.....
