That is a crazy story, the sad thing is at one point or another we have all been there. If there is one thing I have learned through all the Dr. appointments is to be strong and tell them everything, it is o.k. to forget, we all do. Here is a hint that may help before you go to anymore Dr's write down on paper questions and concerns that you are having. This way it will help you not to forget. I know it is frustrating, one Dr. tells you one thing and another Dr. tells you something else. My pain is also nerve pain and for 3 months they would not do an MRI, just x-rays. I told the Dr's it is not my bones, if it was A) I would know and B) It hasen't shown on the x-ray, therefore an MRI is the only way they saw how my nerves are being squished by my twisted facet joints. This is a very frustrating situation to be in, but you have to keep pressing on because you owe it to yourself to get as much relief as possible. We all know that living in pain is not easy, another suggestion is to get a second opinion from another pain DR., or see if your family Dr. will send you for one. We know our bodies a lot better than they do and if something is not right, then it isn't right. So the goal is find the something and then you can better help yourself, rather than, going through all these dead ends. After all without patients they wouldn't be making any money, so they owe it to us to use their resources and find out through as many tests as needed how to help you. Well I am glad you shared and I wish you luck in getting a Dr. that understands better and one who will get you the tests you need. Good Luck to you!
