A specialist has helped me with all of this. I love New York City, we have specialists for everything. My ob/gyn did not take my health issues seriously because she assumed I was too young, despite my IF history. My PCP did, but his thinking was that issues might be tied to some kind of auto-immune problem, such as rheumatoid arthritis. I also saw a specialist to rule RA, lupus and related issues out.
