Well Whitney, ask to see a different doctor. I had many of your symptoms and was miserable for years. I was first diagnosed with ulcers etc. and told that stress was the major factor. I finally found a great GI specialist who properly diagnosed me with Crohn's disease. I had a resection 9 years ago and felt fantastic! Over the past few years I've gotten sicker and my new doctor did very little except for setting up times for future apointments. I switched insurance companies and when back to my original GI doctor who within weeks has found that the Crohns is back in force and that I have so much scar tissue built up from the surgery that I can't pass food!
If you dont feel you are getting the results you want from your doctor, don't be nice about it - get another doctor who will do something!
