Thanks and I'll keep you posted!
I spent 2500 each year for my deductible since 2010, probably going to do hit it again this year too. I finally found a doctor who's an MD but he focuses on functional medicine. I'll post any positive results I get from this experience. He's the doc who told me I had Fibro, the Rheum blew me off, totally blew me off, and others said I had anxiety, which of course I do because I am ill all the time and I'm upset about it. Makes sense to me. I don't know if the new treatment plan will help me out, and I'm still going to see my neurologist and gastro, but it can't hurt at this point. I have a blood test scheduled to test for any coinfections. Pain, illness and stress can bring down our defenses, plus a lot of antibiotic use (or even a little), and we can get smacked with all sorts of stuff that just won't go away. It can't hurt to find a doc like this and consult with him. If you're like me, you've seen everyone in town anyway, what's one more. I know it gets embarassing. I don't even tell anyone when I'm seeing a doc now, and when friends ask how I am, I just say I'm great. I hope to be one day.
