    Chronic Pain & Spinning Feeling Can't find a Diagnose
    raceware posted:
    Hoping someone might have like symptoms or know where to go or what to do! My niece is 17 years old about a year ago she started having a spinning sensations that came on every so often daily now is constant also developed abdominal pain now seemed to develop into chronic pain thru out her body, that when asked by doctors seems to be an 8 out of 10 scale. She has been thru a battery of tests MRI 's X rays CT scans, inner ear , vertigo I know I'm forgetting allot more & all so far are negative which is good & frustrating at the same time. In fact she had a gastric scope thru the throat which found nothing but after procedure caused her chronic pain to intensify . She is prescribed pain killers and sent for physical therapy for pain & balance but to no avail.
    She has been to I believe 3 or 4 different doctors trying to diagnose also to no avail, also it seems because of her age she is bound to Children's Hospitals & can't see more adult facilities . Has anyone had any like symptoms, suggestions , input or anything that might help!

    Thanks so much
