in Norfolk, VA |
I had felt bad for 5 years, only to be told it's in my head. After seeing 5 gastroenterologists, I finally have a diagnosis. My body felt like it was on fire. The doctors answer was take an anti depressant. I guess those pills convince you there is no pain. I said no to that medication, I just needed someone to verify the pain. He allowed me to ask questions unlike the other doctors who rushed my appt, what a joke! Oh I did I mention I just had a colonoscopy 2 mos prior. Thank you Dr. Janson!!
