Downhearted today, and feeling like initial problems from almost 2 years ago unchanged. Had a wasted trip to St Thomas' gastroenterology yesterday. Dr. recognised no link between back pain, bursitis, diarrhea and my B12 deficiency. Suggested dietician (already been there) and Pain Clinic (which I'm guessing is self-management without diagnosis). Have also previously been to bowel people who did many tests and found nothing of significance, and had x-rays, MRI scan also revealing nothing beyond ordinary wear and tear to lumbar region. Had physio for groin pain where they treated it as bursitis and condition improved temporarily. St Thomas' Gastroenterologist did nothing, because I have no stomach pain. I've got a feeling he may have been the end of my line, and is the second gastroenterologist I've been sent to. The first one suggested dietician, which is why I've been doing the FODMAP diet for 2 months- even though dietician did not believe I have IBS either. Trying very hard to show willing, but 2 years of pain wears you down... any better answers? Anyone else recognise symptoms?
