Should I go see a GI doctor? Anyone with help, please write. I'm desperate for answers.
I have made some big progress with my porblem. I found it had nothing directly to do with digestion though it is involved via nervous system. I went to the chiropractor on the NHS - they adjusted my back and neck. They said I had a sublux - mechanical problem in my spine - so they adjusted it and loosened the muscles in the neck. It didn't immediately wave magic wands but the problem has never been as bad since and has been getting better. I have also have dyspraxia which affects the way the brain sends messages via the nervous system. Please note, I had to do my own research on this - doctors tend to refer to text books every time they diagnose, anything outside this they need help from the patient - after all we are the ones suffering. I was just lucky enough that my doctor was prepared to look at my evidence and take me seriously. Not all of them are like that - they don't like being told. Anway the electrical shocks on the whole are not so severe now and I'm getting regular sleep.
