Need Advice On Type Of Doctor
0

2 posts in this topic

I need to find a new doc but am totally confused as to what kind to start with and need some advice. I moved to a new area and have a BAD history with getting good help so I've been putting off finding a new doctor. I have been gluten free for about a year with super results, the issues I need help with are ongoing dizziness/lightheadedness, energy level and steadily dropping low blood pressure.

I never got an "official" diagnosis and I am NOT willing to go back eating gluten to get one. My blood tests were negative but I had been gluten-free for months before I was tested so I will never know if it was accurate. I am afraid to try a GP because my last one said she never would have suspected gluten since I wasn't anemic. Even though I had come to the office multiple times with malapsorbtion, vommiting and bloating... explaining that it seemed much worse after I ate bread - she said bread doesn't make you sick... has to be coffee or something. I had and allergist say she would run the blood tests for wheat realated illness... to find out later she just ran test for wheat allergy. I found a Naturopath who seemed to listen at first and caught the Allergist's mistake with the gliadin test, but wouldn't test me for anything until I spent months using her expensive Mercury cleansing program (which is dangerous and my levels weren't even that high).

Anyway, I generally (like many others here) don't have much faith in doctors and don't know where to start. What kind of doctor do you see for dizziness and low blood pressure? I am afraid I will start fainting soon if I don't see someone. Should I just try a new GP? I have no referrals around here and don't know where to start looking or even what type of doc I should be looking for. I thought maybe some of you had similar symptoms at some point and would have some advice for me. Any advice is super appreciated!

I would try to find the local celiac support group in your area and ask them who is good to see. I'm sure you will get some good suggestions there.
