Why do doctors seem reluctant to give diagnosis? I have had TMJ for years, 2 cervical fusions, and many others issues. But, my reg doc and my neuro are reluctant to give this diagnosis but I know for a FACT this is what the problem is because I have been told it by several other doctors including ER doctors! Why?
I have been on Amitriptyline for several years without relief and finally I got the neuro to give me Topamax to help the shocks and nerve pain but he did order brain tests....is this a 'light' at the end of the tunnel?
