I'm so frustrated. In the last two years since going gluten-free I've seemed almost well several times, then more food intolerances crop up and I'm not better. I thought I was on the right path a week ago, and had figured out the missing piece of the puzzle, then the same thing happens again. I start to feel sick and realize that my recurring C problem has returned again and I've developed an impaction of sorts that I can't get to clear no matter what I do. I already had chronic C tendencies before this gluten thing started, but it was completely manageable. My GI has helped me in the past with this problem. He takes an x-ray then gives me a colonoscopy prep solution to drink and that works. I've done that twice before. I called my GI on Monday and I still haven't gotten a response. I tried whatever I could to resolve the problem but haven't improved so I left a message today (Thursday!)on the voice mail (they don't take calls after 4:30 I found out today) to try to get in to see him before the long weekend. I'm afraid of being really sick for the next four days until the next business day. Trying not to stress about it. I'm so tired of doctors not understanding what is wrong. I'd like to find a GI who understands food intolerances and how they affect the gut, but I haven't yet. Mine doesn't understand why I still have problems. He's really nice though and he helps me out of a tight spot when I need it so I keep seeing him, each time thinking I won't need to go back. Except now there seems to be a new front office staff that's not at all sympathetic and it feels like there's a firewall between me and my doctor. He's so caring he returns phone calls until as late as 9 pm at times. I hope I'm able to get through to him this time. I've had it with this whole thing right now and I'm in tears. I just want to get better. It's just one of those times I feel worn down by this long process. I could really use some input from someone who has eventually recovered… or from anyone who can understand
