I'm very glad to hear that you're seeing specialists the next two weeks. I'm sure you have already thought of this, but if you write down all your points it'll ensure that you don't leave and then remember things you forgot to ask. (I just did that myself...left the doc without asking something I'd wanted to ask.)
Good to hear that you're trying to deal with the understandable emotional fallout from all that is happening.
One day at a time, my friend. Try to busy yourself with happier things some part of every day. You can't worry and stress this issue away, and I'm sure you're aware of the part that stress can play in increasing symptoms.
As you so wisely said, people with other chronic health issues also wish for relief, and the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence!
Hang in there...
Very best wishes,
