Hi CountryBear, and welcome. I'm sorry your suffering, more so because no one seems to believe you, but I'm glad you found us.
Alot of us here have been through what you describe -- the sceptsism, the looks, the hurtful comments of "it's all in your head", or "you're just faking it", and other worse things none of us like. With all that you've been through you'd think they'd take you a bit more seriously!
You talk about back and abdominal pain. Could there be any corrilation to one of your surgeries in regards to the abdominal pain? As for your back, you're on your feet alot, aren't you? Did they do an MRI of your back? All the test come back clean? Have they tried checking your spinal fluid, or doing nerve blocks?
I ask these questions only because I know the hell I went through trying to find someone, /anyone/ who could tell me what was wrong with me, and how to fix it so the pain would go away. Two years and 7 specialists before I had an answer, and it was probably the last thing I ever expected to hear. I have CRPS, an evil disease that affects the nerves. I'm not saying I think that's what you might have, but I think your doctor's are giving up on you. Don't let them! I had doctor's that treated me like I was just an addict looking for my next fix, that I was faking it, that I was wasting their time because all my x-rays and MRI's came back clean. None of them seemed to have any idea where to look, and it seemed alot of them didn't even want to give me the time of day.
But I found one doctor, actually a physicans assistant that I always went back to, and as he followed my case he had a hunch. He kept referring me off to this doctor and that one, I even went to a chiropractor for awhile when they discovered the curve was out in my neck, hoping it was just a pinched nerve or something ... but not even that helped. Along the way though I met a few doctors who really did care, who were just as frustrated as not knowing that was wrong as I was, and just as determined to find the answer. Maybe try a Pain Specialist/Management doctor and see if they have some ideas. I hope you can get some answers soon.
In the mean time don't give up, Country Bear. I believe you. I believe your pain is real. You're not alone.
