It's been over a year that I've had a specific health problem. Since June of last year, my digestion is very touchy, and I often have... um... water absorption problems. I saw my family doctor, she had some tests run, and couldn't find anything, so she sent me to a gastroenterologist. More tests and everything normal again. He made a guess that it was IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) since I had lost weight and not been able to gain again (I'm actually underweight for my height and age... about 105 lbs), the water retention thing, low energy and hair loss. I went to see an endocrinologist (my mom thinks it might be Addison's disease, since my symptoms are the same as the ones my uncle had when he was diagnosed with AD), had MORE tests done, and have not heard from the doctor's office with the results. It looks like I have a certain amount of lactose intolerance too... need good health vibes, please. Going to call the doc. tomorrow.
