I went to a wonderful physician who really, I mean REALLY listened. Many of the conserns I mentioned to my previous doc (that said "you would be much happier if you didn't pay so much attention to your symptoms")he was conserned about. He suspects neurological damage. He asked if I have had an MRI, and I said no. He want to run some blood work first, like B12 deficiency (which can be even fatal if not treated) that you can have without knowing it if you have IBS and chronic diarrea. I had IBS since I was born (a result of my mothers abuse of Valium). I bet he will have to do a few things (elimination method) before he orders the MRI? he even got a cognitive test done which shows my recall is downhills (I knew that!) I spent a whole 2 hours in there. He was surprised I was never referred to a Rheumy for my RA, I am showing some signs of severe destruction in my spine. Anywho, I never thought I would be so happy to find out that I have some bad problems (all not mentioned here)! Yey! I lost faith in docs, but now I feel some hope. He will go thru every little thing until there is nothing else to go thru. He want to turn every page of my life and every rock.
