I want to howl in grief and rage; I am pained as both a mother, and as someone who suffers from chronic pain every time I hear of someone who has had to suffer from one close to them not believing their pain, telling them it's all in their head, they're faking, they want the attention, and so forth. I have been a victim too of that treatment; the man I was with for years said that to me after a year of specialists and tests and still no answers or proof to what I had. No one should ever have to suffer those words..
It sounds like you have some good doctors in your line up, but it sounds like your major hinderance is your mother. It seems even if she's attended treatments with you she doesn't seem to believe. Did I hear you say you're 18? As a legal adult you should be able to see whom ever you want, regardless of what your mother wants. This is not her pain, it's your pain, and it's affecting your life. One thing I learned was being proactive about my health care. If meds didn't work I had no problem going, this isn't working, we either need to up the doseage or try something else.
Have they tried doing nerve blocks, or sending you to another pain doctor to see what that one says? Don't stop persueing possibilities, till you've got things ruled out. Try to hang in there, hopefully they'll figure out soon what's wrong.
Remember, we're all here for you. You're not alone.
