Hi ZLSJ...didn't realise the GP mentioned it's in your head...did she say those words specificaally?
I think going back to the GI is worth a shot...considering this has been a very up and down year, maybe it's time for another c-scope..at the one year mark..than if all is clear, you could have one in 2 or 3 years. It was a long span between the other and a year ago in May if I remember correctly?
I get gurgling and gas if I'm flaring...but remember that IBS is a huge culprit in gut activity.
I take Bentylol daily...to help with that specifically...because I don't like the feeling of it...even though it can be quite entertaining..lol!
three suggestions.....rectal meds, fibre supplements and probiotics.
How are you feeling regarding the GP's statement? It's great the CT came back unremarkable..however.
Maybe the GI will come through to do the c-scope...at least you don't have to wait too long to get in to see him.
Happy belated Canada Day!
