Update on new Doctor
Several of you have emailed me to find out how my appointment went with the new doctor. I thought after my rant of a couple weeks ago I would tell you that so far, I like her very well. She sat and listened to me talk to her and then she started her exam. She told me that I have Lupus, which I was not happy to hear, but at least now it has a name. Then Monday at 2AM I was awakened by the excruciating pain in my left side again. I went back to see her again. (They got me right in) and she said I have Celiac's Disease. It is confirmed by a simple blood test. Now you mean to tell me it has taken years for someone to come up this diagnosis after all the CAT Scans, MRI's. Ultra Sounds, colonoscopys and God only knows what else I have gone through. All it took was a simple blood test. She gave me meds for the pain and told me it would take awaile of watching my diet before I would start feeling better, but at least I now have something to work with. Learning to eat again is going to be a problem, but if it keeps this horrible pain away then I am willing to learn. Thanks for all you comments and emails.
