He had blood drawn and called me and told me everything was fine…wrong. My body was rejecting all food, I was losing a lb a day, I couldn’t walk or hold a coherent conversation…and I was fine??? My father found me one day on the couch close to unresponsive, he thought I was dying, he picked me up and rushed me to the ER. there told me, “I don’t know what you are doing here, or what you think I can do for you.”. GI took pity on me, recognized I was an autoimmune mess, as he put it. All the while they were feeding me hospital food with gluten so I got to the point where I could not get out of bed, drink or eat for several days (was on a drip). Dude is always right and me…not so much.) After speaking with me for only a few minutes and viewing my food diary, the doc asked me if I had ever heard of celiac. You know what the average time is for a celiac diagnosis? If you’ve got a Doctor Horror Story to share, write yours in the comments section below. After my doctor couldn’t figure out why I was having so many issues with my digestive system (stabbing pain, nausea 24/7, cramping and a belly so bloated I looked pregnant) she sent me to a GI specialist. She asked me to describe the pain and what I did to manage it (slept, heating pads, ate LOTS of crystallized ginger for the nausea). It took me another three years to find a doctor who would take me seriously. I had had stomach issues my whole life but they were either diagnosed as lactose intolerant or stress due to issues with my mother. The doctor told me, maybe I was diabetic, maybe I was just depressed. Test after test for lupus she said it was inconclusive but had nothing to do with my stomach issues…wtf?? He told me to try to get in with a G…thanks for the help bud! Was kept in for a week whilst the gynecologist and gastro doctors both pointed at each other (that was weird).Hear the story of how she went on to hack her online dating life — with frustrating, funny and life-changing results.In 2007, after a year of constant stomach pain and losing 15 pounds on an already pretty slim fit, I finally listened to Mrs. I went to a homeopath; she took me off gluten without a screen. I just lay there staring at the ceiling because I couldn’t read anymore. Finally someone ran a blood test and bingo – a biopsy a few months later confirmed it.Comment from discussion What is your Tinder horror story?a recent month- long study by Hinge – a dating app similar to Tinder which.They were fatter, thinner, taller, shorter, older or younger than they advertised themselves in their photos.Maybe he had more hair, or she had a way better tan than the person who showed up on the date.
Is it because there’s no drug to cure celiac and so there is no financial incentive for the medical industry? Over the past few years months, you’ve shared doctor horror stories that have absolutely floored me. I asked her what I could do to PREVENT the symptoms I was having. Symptoms continued of course, and I was admitted to hospital emergency in 2011.
We are on our own to begin a new life that we know nothing about. Explained my situation to the new GI, chose a new pcp and saved my own life. Dx celiacs and took it seriously, dx neuro endocrine tumor on my pancreas, and took it out. The funny thing is, about 2 months ago, the original doc’s office called offering me to sign up in his health care management program! In 2004 I was finally referred to specialist and diagnosed with IBS.
I felt better for a month then spiraled downwards fast. Begged to go to Boston, he only ran more blood tests. So over 16 years after me presenting with the very scary symptoms, and making plans to gradually leave work due to sickness (at the age of 34), I finally got diagnosed. My entire GI tract BURNED from mouth to rectum and even water burned doing down.
Have you encountered this favorite pastime of online daters? Before you can even answer, “I’ve met some nice people,” he exclaims, “Well, I’ve got a story for you!
