Hi frustrated mema,

Your name says it all. Frustration, which leads to stress, and more frustration.

It sounds as if you have been through the ringer. I remember how it felt to have so many symptoms and no answer why. Cathy gave you good advice, but let me add a couple of links.

I am not a doctor, but the tightness aroung your mid-section soundss like MS Hug. Here is a story from the MS patient perspective that she calls "The MS Hud Demystified." I hope this helps.

Here is another about Disorders that Mimic MS. This may give you an idea why it is taking so long. The doctors want to be sure it is MS before they say it is. It sounds as if you have seen enogh of going to new doctors, so I hope it does not take too much longer to find out if you have MS or one of these other conditions.

I hope this helps ease your frustration. Good luck.
