I've been having severe back pain for several months. I've had xrays, MRI's. The Dr said I have some renal cysts but that wouldn't cause the pain. My chiropractor said they would. I don't want to go to a whole bunch of Drs again. I've been thinking about going to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL. Has anyone had any experience with them? Are they good and are they freindly? I hate going to Drs that make me feel stupid when I ask questions. Do they take a long time to get things done? It took me two months to get my MRI resulsts. I took a list of things that were bothering me to my Dr and she told me she didn't have time to look at all those. I dont' know if they are all related to my back or not.

My symptoms are:

back pain in middle and lower back - sometimes pain shoots down into legs
sometimes tingling in hands
sometimes feeling like I can't get a good breath
Knawing, cramping pain in back - kidney area
itchy skin

Any help would be greatly apprecieated Thanks
