dear lynda, please look for a clinic, or something where payments are made on income or are free. we understand what you are going thru, and know just how fast this pain makes you crazy!! If only there was a window into our guts, to show everyone who doubts us just what is going on!! But please try and find someone who will listen and try to get you as comfortable as possible, and stay in touch on this, it helps just to know that there are others out there like us. Take care Debra
