In brief: Start with reg Dr

Your regular dr can evaluate your issues & decide whether lifestyle/diet or other simple modifications can help.
Plan on providing a history including diet/meds/supplements& emptying practices.Initial evaluation could result in a rx plan/tests or referral. I encourage u to arrange this soon as delays often slow recovery or detection of significant problems.
