Re: [IP] Abdominal Neuropathy HELP!!!!! " Sorry Kinda Long"

Hello CJ,
Your problems do sound like the beginning of my problems over 2 years ago.
When I first started getting ill, I had just started on insulin  and was
having bowel problems.  My stomach became very tender and pain started in
the left side, down my left hip and back.  I had every test there was but
nothing could be diagnosed.

After two emergency room visits, one hospital stay and many doctors, I was
diagnosed with severe autonomic and peripheral neuropathy.  I was referred
to my third neurologist and he put me on several meds which have helped
some.  Because of all the problems and pain, I have been unable to work
since 9-97.  About 6 months ago I was also diagnosed with CIDP, Chronic
Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy, and fibromyalgia.

After all I have gone through, I have sort of lost faith in the doctors and
their diagnosis.  I hope they discover the cause of your pain soon,  because
doctors have a hard time treating pain.  I believe they think you just want
the "drugs".
