#860135 Doctor Says I Should Take Anti-Anxiety Meds...................

Posted by on 22 March 2013 - 08:57 PM

While I think my PCP might want to roll her eyes at first when I say I saw this on TV and it's Celiac, the fact the only answer I want is to change my diet and see if that helps...well after tests...but I'm not asking for anything extraordinary and given I do have symptoms she is aware of, and surgery etc getting blood tests and endo (which I've have before) aren't above standard of care for my history so I'm hoping she is as relieved as I am...I am really hoping for some RELIEF.


I know in the past i joked about her thinking I was hypochondriac and she said that I had real health issues that gave me reason to be concerned about symptoms that others might not be....so that's a good sign about her response.....

I had bleeding 10+ years ago, bright red low blood levels doctor did a colonoscopy noted hemmoroids nothing else. After my WLS when I had more bleeding my WLS surgeon sent me to a rectal surgeon to be checked. He did a visual exam in the office and dx'd the fissure, and prescribed nitroglycerin cream for it to heal it. I was a bit confused that the other doctor would do a colon but miss it but he was just putting the scope in not really exam the area. But the overall "treatment" is to normalize bowel movement so the area can heal, so going Gluten-Free will do that....
