Should I see a neurologist?

@lorirenee1 Thank you for the suggestion!! Natural fruits like prunes have definitely been helping (vs Colace and Miralax which don't do anything at all) so I will definitely try the papaya. I had never heard of an "internist" before you and @techi suggested it. I have been looking for a PCP so I'll asking about the CBC panel/urine culture. I've had lab tests at the campus health services and they all came back normal but I'm……not sure I trust that, considering what's been going on.

And I'll consider yoga because you're right, I'm very fearful. I can suppress it on most days until I see a weird spot on my arm or my muscles twitch and then I get really panicked. I appreciate that you picked up on that, it's hard to keep under wraps.

Definitely want a Dean of Internal Medicine if you can get one. I had to go to a drug called Amitiza and a syrup called Lactulose because all natural, Metamucil, Miralax, etc. couldn’t solve the problem that my stomach wasn’t digesting after 72 hours, colonoscopies and esophograms were a combination of waterboarding and starvation without REPRESENTATION;)! Good luck on your quest; I have had to go the TOP of every specialty in the WORLD in order to close down the REFERRAL out to tens of sub-specialties out there!!!

Best of luck to you. Primary care physician and internist are the same. Internist is an older term. And do try the papaya. Its a digestive tract "normalizer." A bit of deep breathing, good music, yoga, good docs,…..best of luck….Lori Renee
