In Topic: Should I Ask To Be Tested?

14 June 2006 - 07:29 AM

The doctor I had seemed to think that it was in my head...that kind of thing. He said he would do an endoscopy just in case, but he didn't take a biopsy. He just took a look. I also had a barium test of my lower intestine I think. Everything came back fine, so he told me that I had IBS and should look for psychiatric counseling to learn how to deal with it. Needless to say, I was not impressed with him at all.

I've had stomach problems since I was a child. I was lactose intolerant as a baby and had to drink soy milk. I was able to have milk products when I got older, but I now know that I have to be careful not to have too much. Once in a while a latte or cup of icecream will give me the runs and stomach aches, so I try to stay away from it by drinking soy lattes and lactose free milk.

My stomach tends to get very bloated and gassy often, but I haven't figured out if it is due to food or stress or both. I know that stress affects me physically, and I get very very gassy after certain foods...like foods with garlic or fruits and vegetables. An apple can really mess me up.
