So far they have…
But her on Neurontin – they pushed that to the point that she became ill at the high dose and was feeling very little reflief. Then they tapered her off that with no other medications – she has tried accupuncture to try and find some relief. They plan on putting her on cymbalta – I think that is a antidepresent. They have run some blood labs but have not pushed the more major tests.
I agree – mayo put me through a week of tests and that was after my local had already done them – but they repeated to confirm. It wasn’t until all the pieces were explored that I got my diagnosis and they still observe me closely.
I keep hoping that my aunt will explore a second opinion – but I know how easy it is to trust your doctors or how much you want to trust them.
