A 37-year-old member asked:

How can I know whether to ask gp or internist my health questions about diseases?

Dr. Ralph Morgan Lewis

Whom to ask?: Both fp/gp's & internists have been trained to evaluate & treat many diseases. If the diseases you're worried about are unusual ones, a disease specialist may be your best choice.

See an allergist: You may have an allergy to one of the ingredients used to make the bread. Food allergy occasionally only causes symptoms with exercise. You may benefit from testing for allergy to wheat, egg, soy, milk, and bakers yeast, among other possible tests that will be decided after a thorough history and physical exam by a board certified allergist.

Agreed. Sounds like "Exercise-induced food allergy". I've seen it twice with seafood.

Internal medicine: If you are taking a decent cocktail you should probably be seeing someone board certified in internal medicine.
A 49-year-old member asked:

What happens when you visit an internist thats different from a gp?

Dr. Natarajan Raman

The same thing: The internist is more focused on internal medicine while gp's are more likely to like family practitioners and the one stop shop for everything. Gp's offer labor and delivery but internists usually donot. A good gp and an internist offer virtually similar services with major overlap.
A 31-year-old member asked:

Yes: If they receive the proper advanced traing, they can.But usually do not.
