My girlfriend experiences severe chronic abdominal pain

Customer Question
Hello, My girlfriend experiences severe...
Hello, My girlfriend experiences severe chronic abdominal pain accompanied with nausea daily. We are trying to thoroughly research this and find a path forward. She suffers from endometriosis, multiple kidney stones, and general abdominal pain. She has had her gall bladder removed and appendix seems normal along with all other organ functions. After seeing multiple doctors in the area we are looking for a specialist that may be able to give a correct diagnosis and help relieve some symtoms. We can we go next? Is there a center that specializes in GI and Gyno or Urology and specialized Internists?

Hello..I hope I would be able to answer what you are looking for . I will try to be as simple as possible. Your question is not about the diagnosis or details of your disease. You have just asked to be shown the door of a correct doctor for your friend. The specialist that can help your friend accurately is an ENDOCRINOLOGIST. This specialty deals with the hormonal system of human body. Your friend's problem seems to be recurring due to disbalance of hormones. I will not be able to comment on it until I can see the complete hormonal profile. Therefore your complete hormonal profile should be done first by your GP and then you should be referred to the endocrinologist in a Tertiary care center. I hope I have satisfied you with my answer. If you have any further question, please feel free to ask. Take care

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
