need some serious advice. Been suffering with GORD for about 3 years now. Been on Lansoperazole twice with nothing helping. saw the dr about 3 weeks ago, and my next appointment wasnt until september. yesterday, after the 2nd week of immense pain, i called for an 'emergency' appointment. Saw diff. doc today, and he didnt even have my notes, but proceeded to tell me that basically my condition was psychosomatic. Anyone else had this? i assure you, my imagination isnt that good! Feel like i keep getting pawned off. (im 22, female). He put it down to my stress at uni, but ive been through the loss of my dad and nan (who i lived with) and i didnt develop GORD then, so how can a little bit of normal uni stress suddenly debilitate me? also, due to him having none of my notes, and knowing none of my medical history, how can he immendiently put it down tyo something mental? feel like im being pawned off and ignored, and really dont know what else to do? considering going private and just paying for surgery. Oh, the first specialist i saw said im missing my Lower Oesophageal Sphincter: so how will tablets help, but surgery wont??? Has anyone had a similar experience, or anyone have any advice? feel like im getting nowhere
