So sorry to hear you're suffering, I wish I knew enough to give advice on how to ease your pain.
I know the work thing is a real issue. So many people must be making themselves sicker from the stress of trying to hold onto their jobs while they're going through their initial flare. Personally I've been able to change my routine and spend much less time in my office, so I've been fortunate so far.
I've never been a frequent visitor to the doctor's office, until recently anyway. In an enlightened moment I decided to seek out women doctors exclusively (even my dentist) and I'm happy I did. I perceive them as more imaginative, patient and understanding, whether it's true or not doesn't matter as long as it makes me more comfortable, and it does. Men are too impatient, and I should know, I'm one.
Anyway, I do hope your pain subsides soon so you'll be able to eat a bit and relax.
