Doctor in Los Angeles area???

Can anyone please recommend a doctor in the Los Angeles area who treats patients whose levels are in the normal ranges and treats them based on their symptoms???

I've been to several endos already who will not take my case because my lab results are all in the normal ranges even though I have all the classic symptoms, even the weird ones!

See below:
Debilitating Chronic Fatigue (also wakeup exhausted)

Headaches, Head Pressure

Eye Pain, Discomfort, Pressure, Redness, Discharge, Droopy Eyelid, and Heaviness Over Eyelids/Squinting

Eye Sensitivity to Light


Brain Fog

Cognitive Impairment

Decreased Mental Ability
Difficulty Concentrating

Inarticulate – problems forming and finishing sentences- can’t remember words, get lost through sentences

Memory Loss

Flu-like Symptoms – overall not feeling well

Severe Hair Loss – daily

Coarse Hair

Chest Pains


Sore Throats, Sinus Problems, and More Frequent Infections

Complete Lack of Libido and Sex Drive

Thinning Coarse Sagging Facial Skin & Sagging Facial Muscles

Skin Discoloration (gray)

Dark Circles Under Eyes

Puffy/Swelling Face


Weight Gain and Constipation

Prone to Occassional Red Rashes on Chest Area

I need a doctor who thinks outside of the box, I've been very sick for over 3 years and will continue to be sick for the rest of my life if I can't find a doctor who is willing to help me.

Any recommendations you have will be appreciated from the bottom of my heart!

Why don't you post the testing you have had and ranges. Hopefully you have had a complete workup to include antibody testing, TSH, FT3, FT4.
