JUST WONDERING HOW NANCY O'NEIL WHO WROTE ON 2/15/10 FROM TN.MADE OUT. MY SON HAS BEEN GOING THROUGH ALMOST THE SAME SYMPTOMS FOR ABOUT A YEAR NOW AND NO ONE CAN DIAGNOSE HIM, THEY LOOK AT HIM AS THOUGH HE IS CRAZY.

HE IS NEWLY MARRIED AND HIS ILLNESS HAS TAKEN A TOLL. HAS SEEN NUMEROUS DOCTORS IN THE BALTIMORE AREA. MANY ARE FROM HOPKINS AND NO ONE TAKES THE TIME TO REALLY EVALUATE. CT, MRI SCAN SHOW NOTHING THERE FOR THEY THINK THE PAIN AND HEADACHES ARE NERVES.

STILL STRUGGLING TO GET A DIAGNOSES.
