Boy, is this a drag.
I began getting nauseous the first week in May, after I started using CPAP. I quit using that and have seen my Internal med doc and an ENT. I've had a colonoscopy, an upper abdominal ultrasound, a HIDA scan, lab tests, which were all negative. My doc wanted me to see an ENT and a GI doc, so I went to a new ENT and got a sinus cat scan. I'm waiting to hear back from the ENT. I'm the kind of person who has to do one thing at a time, so I put off seeing the GI doc, until this other stuff was done. I really thought it was the CPAP or a sinus problem, since I'm having dizziness too. But now I'm having more diarrhea, so I'm thinking its a GI problem. I finally called the GI doc this morning, and he's on vacation until the first week in August! I probably could see one of his partners, but I'd rather see him.
Of course now I'm mad at myself for not seeing him a month ago. I'm sure I need an upper endoscopy.
Is it possible to have an ulcer without much pain? The only mild pain I have is in my left mid abdomen.
I finally got scared enough to call the doc, and now I can't go in for a month. Its one of those nagging things that you keep thinking will resolve itself, but it hasn't yet.
I suppose I could use this month to see the OB/GYN and make sure it isn't a hormonal problem. I think my Internal med doc would order an abdominal ct scan, but I'm thinking I might not even need that, once we see what's going on in my stomach. Darn. Why do docs have to take vacations?? hahaha I'm sure he doesn't even need one. ;)
Any suggestions? Its easy to think its a cancer that, during this month, it will go from treatable to terminal.
(Isn't it funny how easy it is to get carried away........)
