Having a Bad Day at the Doctor's Office

Why do the nurses at the pediatrician's office have to be so rude?  I love our doctor but her nurse stinks. She is rude and unconcerned. She always makes me feel like I am an over reacting mom. I honestly can't stand her today.  I need to go and pray and it's a good thing we don't go in to see her until tomorrow, because I will have time to cool down. I just have had it with the run around with my daughter. It took over 2 years to get to where we are now, and you would think that they would jump through hoops and not make me jump through hoops to get something done. One of their doctors misdiagnosed her about a year ago, and she ended up in the hospital so sick with acute colitis. Stop acting as if this is not real or just a little allergy! That is what I want to

say to her. She needs labs drawn to see what she is lacking. I know that she needs this so why do I have to come in there to let you look at her in order to get it done? She has not gained her weight back since last June when she was misdiagnosed, and now since we have her on this diet she has lost another 1/2  lb.--for a total of 4.5 lbs. She is so tiny she is 7 and weights 42.5 lbs.! That should speak for itself--are they scared to mess up again or do they want that doctor's visit fee? Ugggggh I am so upset today. I am having a feel bad day. It has hit me today that she has this for life, it's not going away, she won't out grow it like most food allergies. It's here and we need to fight it for life.  I have met a woman who's daughter was diagnosed at age 3 and she is 13, she is also a nurse, so she has helped me a lot in what to ask for at the doctor's office. I hope tomorrow  I have a more upbeat blog. I know I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

I feel the pain in your words. Doctors and their staff can be so impersonal at times. I wish you luck with your visit and hope you find some good solutions that help!

Leg pain can be a symptoms of celiac or NCGS. Cause can also be from a deficiency brought on from different causes including celiac. How are her magnesium levels? And B-Vitamin Levels? Bit of a joke, doctors call their occupation a "Practice" seems they need more practice.

I keep my eggy flat bread in the freezer for quick fixes of eggs normally. But I do sometimes make a porridge out of almond and coconut meal, Konjac flour can be used to thicken stuff into a nice porridge wand works great with almond butter. and I sometimes make a oatmeal knock off using Miracle ...

It's so frustrating how they don't order all or the right tests and then if something comes back not right--just ignore it. With my daughter I knew something was off for some time but her blood tests -of course it was only a ttg iga and immunoglobulin a that were run-came back negative. But in ...

I eat oatmeal and granola made with certified gluten free oats. I have to be careful of those that are labeled just gluten free or organic oats on the label as I have had adverse reactions. I also eat Rice and Corn Chex. If I am traveling, I can usually find them in grocery stores even in small ...

Hey fellow celiacs! Just wondering what cereals everyone eats. I know cereal is not the most nutritious choice but sometimes making eggs gets tiring so just a nice list of gluten free options would be great?
