Had to see a private gastro today for relentless nausea and difficulty eating I've experienced over the past 6 months; I've also vomited blood/bile several times. I told him I've been diagnosed with CFS but that my current GP doesn't believe I have it; he chuckled and said "ah, a non-believer, huh" .. which I took to mean he at least acknowledges it exists. Anyway, he took a brief history over the course of 15 minutes, then gave me a prescription for nausea and reflux. I figured that given the postulated connections between CFS and the gut, he'd at least look into other stuff like SIBO/breath testing, possible malabsorption issues etc.? I don't really want a scope, so thankful he didn't force that, but I also feel a little short-changed.
