    have you been to see a doctor or self medicating. If you have not been to see a doctor do see one. you can not fix this problem yourself. If you are seeing a doctor get a second opinion as it appears he/she does not have a clue as to what the problem is. This is nothing to ignore you need to get it taken care of now.
