It's all in my head

So I went back to the doctor again yesterday and I had a feeling they were leaning towards telling me I'm crazy. After running every test out there and not finding anything, what else is there to tell a patient who says a body part hurts?

The doctor said he gave me the medicine to calm the nerves in my stomach, but the pharmacist said the medicine is used to treat anxiety and depression. He asked, what is the doctor giving it to you for? I said IBS. He said, oh, yeah, they use it for that too. (Sure they do!)

So, I came home with my 'happy pills' and took one last night. Knocked me out in about an hour and my stomach still hurt enough to wake me up during the night. The pharmacist said it would take about a week for it to start working. But at least I only have to take the meds once a day.

So, the doctor got rid of me for another week. I'm praying that this will work and that I will finally get some relief and who knows, maybe I do have anxiety? The doctor said some people don't know when they are stressed. I said that I figured when I had my hands around a student's throat I figured that was a pretty good sign. (I don't really strangle students, but some days I wish I could!)

I can'r imagine how frustrated you must feel with not having any relief from you pain! And I do NOT think it's all in your head dear sister...Keep on pushing them doctors and I found that a lot of googling helps to almost diagnose your self, then you can just TELL the dr what you have and to give you the right solution from there :)...My sister diagnosed her daughter by her own research and after dr's could diagnose her after 4-5 hospitalizations after she was born...Yep she told the dr's she was pretty sure Lillie had "Eocyniphillic Esophogitus"...I know big Word...Ultimatly God knows and so just continue to keep your eyes fixed on Him...

Oh and PS...They tested her with what my sister said and sure enough, That was her diagnosis...She's allergic to most foods and has to be on a medical formula and she's three and a half!
