  • The fact that you are losing weight is an issue!!!! Get a second oppinion! You could go to the e.d. and see if they are willing to help. I had horrible stomach pain and my pcp wrote it off as gas and said to come back if the pain persisted. Well over night the pain increased to the point where it felt like labor pains but without the baby so i went to the e.d. and it turned out that I had appendcitis!!!! Now I'm not trying to raise you alarm or anything all I'm saying is its better to be safe than sorry!!! Please keep hydrated, because excessive diahrea can make you loose alot of fluids; powerade or gatorade, or even the pedialyte are best. GL and I hope you get well soon!!!

  • Make sure you're drinking plenty of fluids so you don't get dehydrated.

  • Yes, I would definatly have a second and third and 4th opinion! My doctors were like that too... But it's your body and you know whats right to you more then they do, so I'd keep changing doctors until I got the answer that satisfied me!!!
