Time for a New Doctor

Hey friends! Things have been rather uneventful, but still busy nonetheless (hope you don't mind how boring things sound). Thanks to my mom's great job, they provide a free clinic that covers just about everything. I haven't been in over a year, and I was extremely skeptical to go due to the fact that the last time I went the doctor on staff provided me with some meds that really screwed me up. I'll save that whole story for another day. Thankfully, they have a new doctor on staff who seems to really know what she's doing. So we went because I'm still having problems with nausea. Like, constant problems for years! I eat breakfast and feel nauseated, after dinner I sometimes feel sick, and nearly every night when I lay down to go to sleep I feel really bad. Compared to other people, I've thrown up way more times than anybody else I know (on average I throw up every month, but usually only once or twice a month). The doctor told me that she could prescribe me some stuff to help with the nausea, but without really knowing what's wrong inside of me she is just giving me meds for the symptoms. She highly recommended that I see a gastroenterologist, and my mom acted like that was the worst thing in the world to do when all along I've been asking her to check around town for the best GI doc for me to see for over a year. And I'm finally getting to see one. I'm hoping that they can figure out what's wrong with me, whether its ulcers or acid reflux or something else. My appointment isn't for a few weeks, and I'm sure it will take a few more weeks for them to actually do anything.

Pray for the doctors to figure out what's been wrong with me!

  1. I was going to a general practitioner who falsely told me I had IBS for three years. Went to a GI and was told I'm lactose intolerant. Sometimes specialists are really needed.

    Have you been checked for acid reflux???
