I had my gastro appt. I told him what was going on, he said there is too much going on to be gastro. Well if your esophagus and stomach and pevlic area hurt because you have had severe diarrea and am nauseated and feel sick after eating. What the heck is it. He called it functional or dis functional tissue something or other. Looked at me like it's all in my head.
I am taking previcid, and have been for a few years now and was doing fine on it until taking the plaquenil and lexapro. WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO AND WHERE DO YOU HAVE TO GO TO GET HELP????????
I went for a pelvic ultrasound right away and the tech was asking questions and she said well are you getting a colonoscopy and endoscope? I said he wouldn't do the colonoscopy and I had to insist on the endo. I said I guess if I am not bleeding it's no use to do one. He smiled. Jerk! The tech that did the pelvic ultrasound made some kind of noise after I told her that. He looked at my blood work that I had done lately for most every thing and he said well this is normal and this is normal and well that the rheumy should talk to you about I don't know anything about that. And doesn't anyone want to know why I am running a fever most all the time.
No one will listen to me or wants to help me. He made it sound like it's all in my head. What a waste of time and money, and yes it was.
Just don't know where to turn to.
