Totally Frustrated With Doctors!

10 February 2006 - 01:54 PM

This is my first post, but I am sooo frustrated I'd like to vent. My 5 year old son was diagnosed 2 1/2 years ago with Celiac Disease. Recently he has been complaining of severe stomach pain, so I took him to the doctor to see if we could get something for the spasms. I told the Doc. that I was trying to determine where he might have picked up gluten, he is in kindergarten and maybe he picked up a crumb or two from another kids cookie. The Doc. then informed me (in a very patronizing tone) that it would take more than just a few mere crumbs of gluten to hurt him. I began to argue the issue, but it was impossible. God, don't they teach these people anything? Any advice on how to deal with these idiots?
