I saw the PA of my GI doctor yesterday.  She was SO awful.  She commented on how bad I looked (normally I am told how "beautiful" I am. ugh!)... She said that I don't want to get better.  She also said that I looked much better the last time that she saw me.  I purposely LOOKED better the last time because I wanted to get treated better.  She said that I only wanted to get better the last time she saw me.  Is she mad??
 
I am doing everything in my power to get better!!  I have been diagnosed with very severe GERD and IBS and I still have the lump in my throat feeling with the PPIs.  I also have lesions on my tongue for some reason.
 
She said that it's far too much for someone in her 30s to have and that I am the reason I'm not getting better.  She wants me to see a psychologist.  *NEWS FLASH,* I saw a psychologist before, and the psychologist said that this is a physical problem, NOT an emotional one. 
 
I think I should write this PA a letter!  I surely do NOT want to be treated this way!!
I am so upset, how am I supposed to get better if GI doctors blame me for still being sick??  Maybe they just don't want to blame themselves!!  What do you think?

Is your Doctor not giving you as much hardship as mine then?  It is very hard for me to find a good doctor and I am very sick! :(

My advice for what it's worth is to move on from anyone who is not giving you good service. YOU are the customer.

Hope you feel better.

Thanks, marthamae.  I've moved from doctor to doctor with no luck.  So I think I'm just going to try a nutritionist and see if enzymes can help me, and nutritional supplements.

I am terribly sick.  My tongue has lesions, I get pains in my chest, the lump in my throat is there 24/7 and so is my exessively dry throat.

Hey friendlygal! Don't give up! I have seen so many different doctors, consultants and alternative therapists I have lost count. I have been told that "You don't look sick", that "It's just the humidity", "Stop being silly" and "We don't know what is wrong with you so go home"! I was also told I had suffered a mini stroke! (I hadn't)!Finally I found someone who realised that I was ill and knew what was wrong with me and it was a fantastic feeling! I have never looked back and am scheduled for surgery in 2 weeks time. Do you have someone who could go with you to your appointments? I took my husband along and he wouldn't let me give up until I was sorted. Keep believing! :-)

Bo Peep-

I really got to laughing over your comment that someone told you "it's just the humidity!" regarding your illness. That's a new one- no doctor has ever suggested that one to me. But I'm sure one will! Thanks for the chuckle.....:)

Sounds to me that you definately need to find another doc - I know, easier said then done eh? As for your tongue lesions, these can be caused by so many different things and you need to get to the bottom of it. Have you ever been tested for cancer?
