Hi i'm new here and i'm hoping someone can help me.
Over the past 9 years i've suffered with bad abdomen pain, toilet trouble, mood swings just to name a few. My old doctor was useless, saying it's just a bug or it's IBS. I've just changed my doctor a few months ago and she is great. She has done blood test after blood test just to get to the bottom of this. One of my blood tests have come back positive for celiac disease. I'm seeing a specialist this afternoon, also booked in for an endoscopy on the 31/3/10. I'm so scared about having this done, I have a fear of hospitals at the best of times. Can anyone please tell me can I be put right out like any other operation, or do I have to be awake?
I'm a diabetic as well and this worry is really messing up my sugar levels, as well as making the abdomen pains worse.
Please can anyone help me on this? I'm going mad!
