not sure what community to post this in.
stayed up to watch a film and have spent the last hour and half trying to get to sleep.not cos I stayed up a bit later than usual but cos of symptoms and questions going round and round in my head.still coughing when I lie down at night and my neck is tight and lumpy-enlarged glands??
what I have going around in my head is why am I still being given meds for IBS and bowel problems when I have never had any.i know I am repeating stuff but (what I wrote just got deleted and cant remember what I wrote)btu why when my gp only mentioned IBS in his letter to DWP when claiming ESA and if he is so adamant I have IBS why didnt he ever prescribe meds for it?and why when I saw a gp recently cos couldn't swallow did she then prescribe Buscopan which I looked up and found it to be a med for IBS?then I was given Fybrogel after being diagnosed with diverticulitis .another preparation for bowel problem(IBS?).my bowels have always been normal as I have told them over and over.none of these meds are doing anything to reduce my stomach and I wonder if they are doing more harm than good as my stomach is in fact increasing in size and hardness which to me says it has to be something else.i am talking of 3 stone+ in weight .it got worse after I had my gallbladder removed and other members at that time said that cos no longer have gallbladder its to do with bile and enzymes so its possible something else is being missed.
I am hoping when I see the consultant about my hands he /she will recognize the swelling etc and tell me it is acromegaly and I when I see my gp on 26th im going to ask for referral to ENT to remove nasal bone growth and also to ask him to have bone growth removed from my foot as i cant get my shoes on and I cannot walk cos of it being so sore .
