Re: Awful treatment with no luck

Hi Niad,

Hang in there, it seems that so many people go through a huge struggle to get their issues diagnosed and treated properly. I would contact the 2 closest hospitals and see if they have a physician referral list. Here in the U.S. most hospitals will give you the name and phone number for physicians that fits your needs such as a rheumatologist. See if they have one and ask for the names of a few. I hope you can find a good doctor that will figure things out and order some tests. I think you said the first doctor didn't order any tests! Wow, that's crazy for him to not order any tests. I hope you find a good one soon as it's very difficult living with a disease let alone not getting any treatment for it too.

Take care
