Posted by McCloud (as ),
I have had long term gastrointestinal problems for years. Severe bloating, intestinal permeability and especially oral hyperkeratosis ('hairy' tongue) and really dry mouth.
I was waiting for an appointment for gastroenterology for more than 5 months. I was hoping to have a serious conversation with the doctor about my problems. As I have went through countless medical examinations and treatments and have done a lot of research in this area, I am fairly educated.
However, the doctor was lacking the knowledge and was not keen to discuss my problems, telling me that 'I cannot do anything about it' and 'it is absolutely normal'.
The doctor even refused to prescribe any medication.
