Hi Lisa:

I just wanted to let you know, you are not alone with your experiences with the doctors. I just want to let you know, not to lose hope (like I have so many times.) There are people working on these problems and hopefully, sometime in the near future, they will have better ways of determining what causes the pain and ways to treat it. I hope by you knowing that there are others like you with the pain and frustrations out here, together we can keep making "noise" and get the doctors motivated. I wish you well.

Regards, Wayne
