Should I Push The Issue With Doctor?

09 December 2012 - 12:26 PM

I am a 34 year old male currently dealing with dizziness/brain fog, balance issues, coordination issues with hands and feet, left knee joint pain, throat tightness (feels like lots of phlegm in throat), stomach cramps, muscular chest pain, dairy intolerance issues, low vitamin D and alternating between constipation and diarrhea/unusual stool that smells more foul than usual. My symptoms started in July/August with just dizziness and stomach cramps, but now as you can tell we have more issues.

I have been seen by my primary doctor who referred me to an ENT for the balance issues. The ENT/Otologist referred me to the Oto-nuegrologist who thinks I may have Migraine Associated Vertigo (MAV). I am going to the best ENT hospital in New England. I am on a Migraine Diet and do not see any difference. He will place me on Nortriptyline to help with the MAV next time I see him.

I have been tested twice for Lyme and it came up negative. Tested negative for the following test: Thyroid, Anemia (B12), Diabetes, and many other blood tests.

I have had a brain MRI, brain CT scan, vestibular testing (rules out ear issues), etc. All found no issues by the ENT.

I have had a Upper/Lower GI CT scan with Barium Sulfate with gastroenterology. No issues

I have had an EKG, echocardiogram, and stress echo. All test came out normal.

I saw an endocrinologist who tested me for the Vitamin D and Celiac Disease with the

Tissue transglutaminase antibody (tTG) test. the tTG test revealed I do not have Celiac.



Should I push the issue? Should I ask for a full celiac panel to be run and/or an

endoscopy?

I would appreciate anyones feedback. Thanks to everyone in advance.
