I understand how difficult it is with doctors. I was told it was all in my head too. A lot of us were actually. All we can do is encourage you to keep doctor shopping. You will eventually get a doctor to listen to you.
One step you could take is to get in to see an Internal Medicine Specialist. When I did that (after a decade of doctor shopping) she immediately knew what it was. I was diagnosed a few days later. That's one avenue to try if you already haven't.
You're doing all the right things. The puzzle pieces just have to fit now. Keep us posted!
