I had the same problem except i went through the embarassment and cost of a colonscopy for him to tell me this. I wanted to hurt him physically. I have a new physician, just met with him monday. Fantastic guy, keeps up to date on all gastro conditions and actually quoted me a study that IBS is proven to not be 'all in your head'.I trust this guy and if you cant find a specialist that will help you, switch to another, there are plenty around.quote:Originally posted by bluenoggie:1. How bad does it have to get before you put me on something that will help prevent an episode, instead of something I take once it has already started?2. How many tests are you going to run before you give me the definate diagnosis of IBS?I had to switch doctors because my first one just gave me the "take more fiber and everything will be fine" route. And she sent me to a GI specialist who said the same thing. My new doctor, whom I have been with for about six months, is willing to listen to me, run tests if she thinks of something else that my IBS could actually be, gave me pill so that I could actually go out and do things, and she is more then happy to take the time to just sit down and talk to me to answer what ever questions that I have,no matter how stupid they seem. If it takes switching doctor's once or ten times, find one that works well with you.
