  • I don't know if it will help, and I don't know where you live, but I'd contact a major university-related medical center neurosurgery and orthosurgery departments. You may be able to submit your information and test results and get a consult.

  • Gosh, I wish I could do something. The only thing I can do is tell you that I am like you in that I believe there are solutions for most things. After about 8 months of what seemed hopeless searching, I found a solution for me. I did lose hope several times, but somehow, I just kept looking. Finally, it happened. My point is, keep searching and know that it might not be easy. I am confident that there is help for you out there somewhere. Just gotta find it.
