Question unknown diagnosis 6 wks and counting

my mom has been in the hospital in critical condition for 6 wks. Some how the doctors havent come up with a cause. They have told me and my family several times they think they know what she has, then her symtoms change and they arent certain. shes basically comatos, and they cant tell me why. they've tested her for everything from meninghitis to west nile to neuroleptic malignant syndrome. now they say she has symtoms of ms but its not that. they also say something about stickam condition.help this is causing so much stress on my family and myself

Re: unknown diagnosis 6 wks and counting

Looks to me that a second opinion is required. God only knows how we humans are so compicated,with billions of cells in our brain alone.I would think that some definitive clue would be found by this time.My wife had an infection that was undiagnosed for six months.The tests would always declare "fever of unknown origin".Finally ,a CA lab test identified it as a bacterial infection.She died of "endocardis" a few years later,I assume from this infection.Info on death certificate is scarce,indeed. Good luck...Bill
