Thanks and still no answers

So I saw a rheumatologist about two weeks ago.  Took 8 viles of blood - presumably for every test known to man, had x-rays done of my shoulders, hands, knees, and feet looking for swelling.  Has sent me to a sleep center to have a sleep study done. Sent me to an endocrineologist, just to see if there might be additional endocrine problems.  Follow up (and test results!!) not until July 11!!  I'm going crazy and am in constant pain and I'm supposed to just wait around for test results?  I know I'm whinning, I'm just really frustrated with this whole process.  I feel like the doctors either think I'm making this up or everything is a weight issue.  My question is did anyone else have this much trouble getting a diagnosis?  I'm begining to question myself at this point.  Maybe I am crazy.  Help.

Can't you just call doctor's office and request a copy of your lab results?

I tried.  They said no, not until I meet with the doc.  I just need more patience I guess.  Thanks for responding.
