Alot of doctors are incompetent, know one knows your body and symtoms better than you.
I had right side neck pain for 3 years. Many many doctors, many tests, they neverwere able to find a cause. I had i very small icm lymph node from the very beging. But all the doctors i saw just about the lymph node all said that would not be causing me so much pain. The pain i felt was in a different area of the neck than where the lymph node was so for 3 years all doctors (3 ENT's) and regular doctors said it was to small to be causing pain.
Finally, i saw 1 doctor that said something different. He said usually they dont cause alot of pain like i was feeling, but... also said there are alot of nevers in the neck and it could be rubbing against those every time i turned my neck. So he sent me to a surgeon to have it removed.
The tiny lymph node was removed and almost instantly felt relief. A 3 year nightmare of many doctors, tests, pills, all was due to a tiny lymph node that 6 doctors said dont cause pain when they're that small.
lil advice for all you guys looking for relief and answers, alot of doctors dont care about you. or finding out why you're in pain. you need to keep fighting for answers, go to to as many doctos as you can until you feel like someone is fighting with you. 3 years of a everyday pain nightmare when it could of been handled on day 1.
2nd advice, if you keep reading these posts you will convince yourself you have cancer. but most cases its not true. you're gonna be fine, question is when and how.
IF A DOCTOR DOES NOT HAVE AN ANSWER FOR YOU, KEEP GOING TO OTHER ONES UNTILL YOU FIND SOMEONE THAT DOES HAVE SOME ANSWERS!
GL, somtimes its a long recovery road and somtimes 1 day or 1 procedure could fix it all.
