@contentandwell, Thank you for sharing your experience. I actually live in central NC right by Duke and UNC. Unfortunately, I have seen GI and Cario doctors from both and neither have been able to help. I'm caught in a loop where each new specialist I see tells me within 15mins of meeting me that they cannot help me. I'm guessing this is because they've seen my previous testing from previous doctors and feel those results are conclusive.

@jc123 when I confronted my PCP about not diagnosing me despite obvious symptoms and red flags he said he relied on what my previous doctor had thought! To me, that’s just wrong. When you go to a doctor for another opinion they should start from scratch and try to put the pieces of the puzzle together.

If you ever watched House on TV about a cranky doctor who was an incredible diagnostician you see, despite that just being TV, that a good doctor really has to give difficult diagnoses a lot of thought and analysis. I think that’s a gift and more doctors don’t have it than do.
