NOW WHAT?????? I would like to see her feeling good one more time shes only 53 years old and use to work in the yard all the time. now she goes home and lies in the bed everyday.
Welcome. I am sorry to hear this long, sad and frustrating story. Are you talking about yourself, a spouse or a friend? And are you in the USA?
Certainly "Doctor 7" needs to be reported!! Not only to the manager of the clinic but to the licensing board of physicians. Unfortunately there are physicians out there like him. Luckily they are far and few between but the do exist. I wonder why they ever wanted to get into medicine, certainly it wasn't a driving need to help humanity.
What next is a very good question. I'm sorry but I have no answers. I'm inclined to agree with "Doctor 3." I think he may be one to something but it will require more than a Vit B12 injection.
Don't give up your search even though it is frustrating. I may return to the neurologist and ask if he has additional recommendations. Others will post with their suggestions. It is a weekend and we tend to be a bit slower with responses during this time.
I am wondering if the Doctors...any of them has done a Liver Function test? Any Liver tests at all?? It sounds as if the pain may be located in that area. I have had similar pain, especially when I take too many medications. It effects my liver and the pain will start in that area moving down to the right lower abdomen area (right Quadrine).
I think that because you have had negative results in most areas, you should seek out a Gastroenterologist and have them explore the Liver.
Ask your regular Doctor about this possibility.
