  • And a doctor told me he doesn't know what's going on, I would seek the opinion of another doctor. Another set of eyes could be just what your issue needs.

    Did he do blood test to begin the elimination process of a infectiom. Are you losing weight without trying , tired all the time. and well just plain feel sick. It took almost a year before mine was discovered and i began to think i was dying. Blood test only show up positive in most people 50% of the time even when the infection is active. I think I would speak with another dr if I felt something was wrong
  • I did have blood work and it showed up negative he told me and my husband he had to show my scans to other dr's to see their opinion. No I am not losing weight if anything gaining cause I can't do anything with being in pain. I am so tired of hurting I just want to live life not just exist and that's what I feel like I am doing existing
