Unhappy Gastrologist ??????

So, I went to the gastro on Thur. of course he said I looked fine (stuck the ole camera down my throat) Well I'm still sick as ever! I go to the hospital tomorrow to have a cat scan with contrast on my abdomen(hell who knows what they'll say, I'm really just soooooooo sick & tired of all this shuffling around and everyone acting as if theres nothing wrong when I feel like just dying!!!! I've never even had headaches before this now it's as if everything hurts(my appt.with LLMD is still set for Sept.22nd) Has anyone had problems with pain & bloating & nausea? Do you-all think that is lyme related or something else going on?
Any suggestions or ideas would be greately appreciated!!!

Re: Gastrologist ??????

Hi Tears...I went through many many many years from this doctor to that doctor. I had pain in my stomach and MAJOR bloating...I even went through a couple years of throwing up and major nausea. ....ALL of my test of course came out that nothing was wrong....The more I learn about Lyme I see that these bacteria (s) just invade our whole body. And cause lots of mis-diagnoises for us all. When you get into treatment (the right treatment) things will start settling down for you...

You might want to watch eatting dairy products and maybe look to see if someting else if aggrevating your stomache. Soy and Rice products are out there....

If I knew back when I wsa running to doctor to doctor ...I wouldn't have wasted my time and energy ...it gets to be overwelhming....

In my thoughts and Prayer's!

Hugs

Re: Gastrologist ??????

last year when I was at my worst, I had a sudden onset of acid reflux/abdominal pain etc. I was on the max dose of prevacid and it barely helped. It was so bad, I was throwing up acid.

I had an endoscopy done and they did biopsies. Everything came back normal except I had moderate swelling in my small intestine. The specialist didn't know what it was from. I told him that I thought I might have Lyme's Disease and he said, "Well, that would explain the swelling." So, I think that he's seen other Lyme patients who have the same problem.

Definitely stay off dairy. Dairy isn't good for anyone. You would benefit from a good probiotic right now too. Regardless of whether your on antibiotics or not, probiotics are always a good thing to be on. Also, stay away from fatty, fried foods...if you still have your gallbladder I'm sure it's "out of whack" too w/ the symptoms you're describing. Also, drink plenty of water, it will help dilute your stomach acid.

Suggest you have pelvic scan done. This is done vaginally, is not painful and should give you answers.

Re: Gastrologist ??????

Hi Tears, sorry you are in so much pain. I forget if you are on treatment? Have you seen a LLMD? Lyme does cause everything that you are going trough and some....

I had every type of test done on me too. and nothing ever showd. I kept the medical field rolling in money...as all the rest of us are. If you haven't been to a Lyme doctor that might be your next step....

I hope today is a little better for you ....

Tender hugs coming your way!
