Going to a new doctor!

Last Wednesday night my legs suddenly began to swell. I mean within minutes. I did the elevation thing and they went down but where discolored so I went to the doctor the next day. By Friday he had taken blood tests for my liver, kidneys, and heart. Those along with my test for clots came out negative. But I had also let him know that I had lower back pain. The back pain has become worse in the last week and I let him know that it includes a burning pressure in my pelvic area & abdomen. I also have bloating in my stomach, which I NEVER have. My stomach is perfectly flat! He leaves a message and tells me that the bloating is probably from ingesting too much air & to use heat and stretches for my back! He has not looked at my back or abdomen. When I got upset they asked me what I wanted them to do now. Did I want to come back in again? No I pass. I'm going to a real doctor this time!
