Re: I am so tired of doctors

its never fun. You DO get used to it. And you get used to not having answers. We see a Dr twice a week most weeks, some times we are there every day, sometimes as many as 3 docs in a single day. We've had almost a dozen spinal taps (maybe a dozen- you lose count) and oh I dunno 50 blood draws? catheters, skin scrapings, several x-rays, a few sweat tests, dozens and dozens of throat swabbings and nose swabbings, IV's and shots of abx.
We've seen 3 ENT's, 2 cardiologists, pulmonology, optometry, orthopaeditric surgeon, neurology, physical therapists, infectious disease specialists, a few immunologists, allergy doc, and I'm drawing a blank on the rest.

I'm sorry you are going through this. I hope they can find some answers soon.
