Oh wow Jessica, just wanted to say I read your email, and I feel for you...you must be in the states? 'cause our medical in Canada's so different..I can't imagine $150 p/visit to see a doctor..let alone the $ you paid for a lab test. Way to go for getting what you've done already done. I'm sure that a good chunk of it's born out of necessity for help, but still...I agree with what the others have said with hang in there. Sometimes it takes multiple multiple symptoms for the ultimate diagnosis of the problem (sounds like you have tons, I know). It will happen. It surely doesn't fix everything when you know, as it doesn't stop new stuff from happening...but I always like to know too, 'cause then you can treat the problems appropriately...
Thinking of you,
