| | Re: Kind of an IBS newbie, feeling very lost & hopeless...
OMG, I read your post & just had to respond even though I don't have any advice. Are you feeling any better yet? If I were you, I would report that doctor to the Michigan Medical Examiner. Physicians take an oath to treat the ill. I've had my share of doctors who are seemingly without compassion.
Is your pain entirely due to stomach cramping? I have constant burning abdominal pain & was diagnosed with gastritis via stomach scope. I've been on protonix 40 mg over 3 weeks & have had no relief thus far. I've lost over 25 lbs since mid-Dec. I basically hyperventilate when I think of living the rest of my life feeling like my stomach is on fire.
Champagne for my real friends & real pain for my sham friends! (teehee)
