Hi Pearl, I...

Hi Pearl, I have had diarrhea for the last two weeks, stomach cramps and it is getting worse. My doctor has taken stool test and bloods (not returned yet). I am also on Metex xr (for diabetes 2) and have also been having huge stresses at work. Is this a stress thing or do I need to go to a hospital? I am in constant pain.

Doctor's Assistant: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?

Bowel movement

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am on lexpro 20mg for anxiety and my recent hormone levels came back that I am menopause (have just taken my Impalon out a month ago). Added to all this I got my first period in 9 years.

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.
