You definitely won't sound like an idiot. Doctors wish their patients would give them more information about how they are feeling. The doctor can only treat you based on what they see and what you tell them, so if you work together and tell him how you are feeling, and what you think might be the cause, or might be contributing to your symptoms, it will help a great deal in treating you. Your doctor will be glad if you bring it up, as it will only help him/her decide where to go next with your treatment or testing. I used to be quiet in the doctors office...but I've been there so many times because of these issues - now I've learned my lesson, I make them work for that co-pay! Keep us updated, I hope you start feeling better soon. Stomach issues can be funny to people who don't have to deal with it, but when you've got them, it's no joke. I know how awful it can be.
