After Threatening To Sue (Warning: TMI Post)

It's amazing how, after you get fed up with your doctor and tell the nurse that if the doctor doesn't call you back with a diagnosis tonight (as opposed to, say, a couple of weeks from now), you'll be calling back not as a patient, but as an attorney, the doctor finds time to call you at 6 p.m. :)

So, anyway, I HAVE A DIAGNOSIS. 4 months of diarrhea, every day, 5-15 times a day, without fail, and I have a diagnosis! I have lymphocytic colitis. Oh, and apparently a pretty serious case of acid reflux. I guess that makes the nausea make sense, but I haven't had heart burn, so I didn't expect that.

I see my internal medicine doctor for a treatment plan in two days, but in the meantime, I can take Imodium long-term, instead of the two days written on the package. Yippee! (Okay, weird thing to get excited about. But huge for me.)

Etcetera.

I am always impressed by how many of life's little problems go away for you, now that you can threaten to sue people ;-)

And I hope the doctor can fix...whatever it is you've got. Not really tracking the diagnosis here, but IANAD, so whatever.
