Stomach and Head
I'd be willing to say that I've had stomach problems forever. It was brought to my attention a few weeks ago that I could have a wheat allergy or another food allergy that has been causing my discomfort. I also have been getting dizzy a lot the last few months. So, I decided to go to the doctor and cover both those issues at the same time (one copay people). Oddly, my old doctor sold his practice (not that I ever got to see him, just his assistants) so when I called this time I saw a new doctor and I really like him! He seemed to really care about finding out what is wrong with me. In the past, the doctors have just kinda brushed my issues aside. I've been told I might have IBS, but never given any solution for it. I was sent for a full allergy panel including gluten as well as an ultrasound of my stomach and an EKG for the lightheadedness. I went for the blood work last week and I'm awaiting the results and tomorrow morning I got for the ultrasound and EKG. Part of me hopes there's nothing wrong and part of me hopes it gets figured out, especially my stomach because it's a real pain to have stomach issues EVERY TIME you eat! I'm off to bed soon because I can't eat or drink after 12.
