Back pain on right side like a "sore spot". Pain in thumbs and inside of forearm (hard time interpreting). Center of chest hurts, eyes are dry, hands very shaky and involuntary head movement (slight nodding or shaking). Dizziness.
MAYO CLINIC: GI doctor disinterested (refused to read chronology of symptoms). Ordered CT scan and some bloodwork (all clear). Said possible nerve damage to abdomen from steroids; shrugged off all other symptoms. When pressed, offered to run an EGD Ultrasound (I declined). Gave me a prescription for Elavil and told me to call back in a month.
