I just dont get this illness. I've had2 colonoscopies and both docs say I'm fine (besides IBS symptoms of course)Does anyone else wake up in the middle of thenight with severe cramping that takes1-4 hours to get it all out of you to feel better? It seems to happen more when I eat junk instead of my banana/rice diet.What's with the middle of the night? Oncein a while this happens in the evening too.I also have semi-constant abdominal pain. Levsin does nothing. My doctor is at Hopkins and I swear to God I could do a better job than she is doing. I wrote her a detailed 1 page letter about my symptoms, and she 'never got it' and didn't seem to care too much about it. She's nice and all, but just way way too busy I suppose. What's the point of practicing medicine, then?I can't stand this illness, I can't do anything I used to. I can't date, I can'thang out with friends, I can't go places without constant worry (and severe cramp attacks sometimes, which are why I worry in the first place!) This is too much for a 22 yr old. I already had Hodgkins disease when I was 16, too. Wasn't that enough?? Why must I suffer more!!!Thanks for listening, everyone. Please relate your personal experiences if you think they are similar, I'd love to get some insight. Thanks again.
