Oh brother! I have been recently diagnosed through endoscopy and biopsy. All of the symptoms I had - brain fog, migraines, stiff joints, etc have an explanation. My diagnosis was curt and by phone by one of the Dr's office workers. "Your biopsy results are back, you have Celiac Disease. Quit eating gluten and we'll see you in 4 weeks." I make the follow-up appointment and my blood is tested - I am supposing for being glutened. The only advise I receive is a packet of xeroxed handouts with websites to go to. When I asked the nurse about recommendations for seeing a dietitian, "That's your job, honey, not ours". "You have to ask for it."
I wonder how often one is diagnosed with cancer and is given the diagnosis, given handouts or told to "go check the internet".
