How many test does it take for a doctor to tell you what's wrong?

I have come from yet another uncomfortable test, with still no answers. Just another prescription of some other drug he thinks might help. The headaches hurt, but the testing is driving me nuts. Today was yet more needles and more electrical shocks. Only to hear well almost everything looks normal, so if your still having discomfort call and make another appointment and we'll set you for an MRI. AAAHHHH!!!! I know doctors can't fix everything why not just say I can't figure it out here is someone who might be able to. Sorry to rant and rave I'm just so frustrated. And of course from the test he ran I now have yet another headache and my arms hurt. So is anyone else out there sick and tired of being sick and tired?

if you're really bothered, i suggest that you seek a second opinion. i think it's important that you trust your doctor in the first place --- it's important in the healing process. it looks like you've lost confidence in him already, so why not try a second opinion?

Yeah I have lost confidence. Maybe not all of it but enough. Everytime I see the man he's sticking me with needles and sending electrical current though me. So I've started seeing a chiropractor. Maybe a different ave to things. Cause the doctor I've been seeing is a bone and joint doctor. I saw my primary and he told me to continue on with the other dr. So forget them all right now. At least at the chiropractor I get a back massage. Thanks for the thought.

I have terrible migranes like that, no one can figure out why... I just do everything i can to stop them, or prevent myself from having them.

That's the point I have to be at myself. I'm slowing down on my caffeine and I stopped useing Splenda all in the hopes of getting these darn things under some kind of control.

i wonder if it may be a trapped nerve in your neck as this could give you headache and pain in your back and arms. dehydration can cause headaches as can arthritis in the neck. why not try some alternate therapy, my sister has neck and back problems and sees an osteopath.

What is an osteopath? I made an appointment with a chiropractor today, at this point I'll stand on my head if I thought it would help. Thanks for the thought.
