My husband was diagnosed with MP in May of this year. His PCP said it was a “controversial” diagnosis, and his GI was not responsive. Since we live an hour from both DC and Baltimore, I started trying to find a doctor who was familiar with MP. Finally found one, but our insurance changed and this doc was no longer in network. Needless to say, the moral of the story, do not give up. Keep pushing. This is a REAL condition, and your pain is very real. What works for one person, may not work for the next person, so, you need to keep trying. I have found that raw fruits and vegetables cause my husband discomfort, so he eats primarily cooked fruits and veges. Basically, looking for things that are easier to digest works for him. Good luck, and don’t give up!
