Keep going to the same place, keep saying the same stuff. Doctors depend too much on their tests and not enough on the words and thoughts of their patients. I also have no insurance but unfortunately there is no free clinic. Keep a log book on pain levels, daily activities and where exactly the pain is. If you can describe the pain that would help too like burning, aching etc. YOU ARE NOT CRAZY!! The medical community is completely unprepared to treat pain that doesn't show up on tests. Ask them for a cbc, white blood cell count, ANA (either positive or negative) sed. rate ( the higher the number the more swelling). Have you gotten x-rays? CT scans? Can u see a nuerologist? Did you apply for disability? I am no doctor but I have been through this, I worked at a blood testing lab and have a BS in Biology. MAKE them hear you!!! Good luck, keep us posted
