OKay---most of you all know the story--I have IBS. Yadda Yadda...anyway, about three weeks ago you all may have remembered I posted about some pains I was having that I was unsure of and the common "diagnoses" here on the board was just a bad case of C. ANYWAY--I had notified my doctor because I was in LOTS of pain. SO he set me an appointment for three weeks later--let's all skip to today (three weeks later). I go to my doctor's appointment and after waiting thirty minutes to actually get back into a room and then thirty more minutes for him to actually come in the room...he doesn't even touch me. He sits on his little stool and tells me that he didn't want to tell me this over the phone because it might be perceived the wrong way but I don't need to call and report when I'm having pain. He told me that I had gone through a series of tests given by him and my previous gastro doctor (like I dont know this) and that they have ruled out everything that it is not. I, indeed, have IBS or spastic bowel syndrome and it is incurable. I am going to have pain and that's all there is to it. He upped my dose of Librax from three times a day to four times a day and told me if that didn't help he wanted to send me to a psychiatrist to be evaluated for mental problems, and I just might need to be on an antidepresant or anxiety drug. (PLEASE!) Then he said he would see me in three months and let me go. THe man did absolutely nothing! And I payed him $20 to do absolutely nothing. I want to switch doctors but I dont know how to go about it...I dont want to sound like a whiner but I don't like the way this guy is treating me now....any comments? Suggestions?
