I've been suffering chronic abdominal pain for 2 years, I have been treated badly by my GP, consultants and friends as they said it was all in my mind. Finally I found a gastro Dr who apologised in behalf of all the Dr that I have paid to help me and have let me down. I've been taking ant acids for nearly 3 years which I have no doubt have contributed to my bowel pain. They caused me so much stress I can't tell you enough about it. Eventually after so many tests I have now chronic gastritis, endometreosis, just had that diagnosed but when they were in there they found a very swollen large intestine which he hasn't seen before presenting with endometreosis. Finally he said he could help with the pain but the bowel he was confused about. This has never shown itself on scans but it was there on the pictures he took. Finally someone believes me. I stuck at getting diagnosed as it has taken so much of my life. I just hope he can find out what that bowel swelling is all about, feels like a prolapse to me. I don't know what is coming my way but I know I won't give up now until someone can sort this out. Anyone want to know more details, especially those who like me were told I had IBS and go away, you may be .looking at a whole new ball game. Hopefully I will get some pain relief from a Dr who took the time to investigate this further.
