Since reading all the struggles people have had with symptoms, testing, diagnosis and I doctors I have realized how lucky we have been. We went from my teenage daughter mentioning that she was having a problem in late July to a diagnosis less than 2 months later! I believe the key component was that her pediatrician ordered the right tests on her first visit (her symptoms were pretty straight forwarb but not extreme) and he followed up on the testing and introduced us to her pediatric gi doctor. Dr Hyams at CT Children's Medical Center then took the ball and ran. Though not out of the woods yet (she has been diagnosed with celiac and ibd) we are very grateful we are headed in the right direction!
We Lucked Out!
