I am wondering if anyone has experienced this and if it sounds illegal.
I was diagnosed with SOD(sphincter if oddi dysfunction-a biliary disease) 7 years ago. I recently had a relapse of pain this past June and my primary doc wanted me to see the general GI specialist in town. I hadd nausea f for two weeks along with excruciating pain in my upper right abdomen. I thought I was seeing the doctor only to be seen by the physician assistant. her conclusion was I was constipated. I cleaned out and after two weeks the pain did not go away . WHEN I called to seen again they would not see me for 2 months . I was fed up ! At that point I insisted on going back to University of Michigan to see the specialist I have seen before for the SOD. He apparently was no longer there, so I saw another DR. This SOD specialist felt that I had IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)and needed to see a local gastroenterologist.
I decided to try and find another regular GI doctor. Everyone that I've contacted will not see me, because " I already have a GI doctor here, and they cannot except me". Has anybody else experienced this scenario? I don't understand why I can't see another doctor if I want to. In the meantime I'm having so much pain I'm beside myself and it's very hard to function.
A side note, I am NOT a drug seeker so this is not a reason why these GI doctors are not seeing me.
Sorry this is so long.
