I messaged my primary care doctor to say that I think I need some help with my gi symptoms now and cannot wait until my gi appointment in October to get relief. I told her how nauseous I have been and vomiting and she prescribed me an antacid to take twice a day to see if that helps and says I need to take a break from marijuana for several weeks to see if that is a contributing factor. She also prescribed me bentyl for my abdominal pain which I have a little hesitation about because constipation is a side effect, but I will try it and see how it goes. She agreed that constipation is a major contributor to my abdominal pain and said that I need to make sure I don’t get constipated. That frustrated me a little because I don’t know how to stop getting constipated, that’s why I asked her lol. She said I can take laxatives every day but has no recommendation as to which laxatives I should be taking and unfortunately most don’t work for me. I will try her suggestions for the nausea, though I am a very light marijuana user so I doubt that’s a factor, and see how they go but I really need more specific instructions on how to manage my constipation and I think my constipation may be severe enough that prescription drugs are required. I have an extremely rare genetic disease and my doctor is so uncomfortable with my case that she refers me to a specialist for the smallest things, it’s almost at the point I have thought of changing primary doctors but I’ve been with her a long time and it would be a hassle.
