Oct seems like a long time, did he tell you why you have to wait so long? I would push the doc to do both upper and lower scopes if I were you to rule out any "throat" issues as well and they need to look into your stomach to make sure that nothing there is causing the problem. With your vomiting, that should really be considered.
I truly believe that we are not given more than we can handle. It took me a long time to realize that after what I have been through in my life but there are reasons for these things. That is my just my belief though, others might think differently. Regardless what your spiritual beliefs are, it helps to have them if just to get through the days and to find happiness in everything (without IBS and my other disorders, I would never have had the chance to be here and meet so many great people).
