YEAH! At the same time she no longer needed a pediatrician I got a new insurance that no longer required a referral. Her pediatrician had been treating her "stomach problems" (He never made an attempt to make a real diagnosis) for 4 years with tagamet for pain, and phenergan for nausea and vomitting. I took her to a GI doc, who did a barium drink and small colon follow-thru (upper GI). I called him when we got the "negative" results, and asked him what was next. His response, well, isn't she better since the test? "You stupid man, she has suffered with this for 4 years, what makes you think that making her drink that sick chemical barium and irradiating her was going to make her all better. Of course she is not better. NOW, will you do the upper endoscopy I asked for in the first place?" Well, I really see no reason but I will do it. Today he did it, and had to admit that there was esophogeal inflamation due to gastric reflux disease. Well what do you know.... He prescribed Prilosec, and we will see if that helps. I am just SO frustrated that they made this little girl suffer for so long because it is so rare for young people to suffer like this, and why bother to run the tests. ARRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!Well, now we are changing doctors. Found one that we will try in a small town out of Portland. There are not any in town I trust, and if I am asking one to treat my daughter, I want to be able to trust him/her.Maggie------------------Praying for a cure for this NASTY IBS!
