my mother is 58 yrs old. within the last 5 months she has lost most of her hearing and developed leg numbness (sometimes paralysis) and on good days, difficulty walking. the hearing loss seems to get worse as the day goes on, (we have been told by doctors she is clinically deaf.) She fell and fractured her arm nearly 3 years ago requiring screws, and later was diagnosed with rsd. now, after being out of work and a kings ransome worth of medical bills, she goes through multiple tests and a spinal tap at johns hopkins in baltimore. the best response we recieved is a shoulder shrug and shown the door. the reports show a low white blood count (2.1) and she has had a severe history of eating disorders (she weighs about 90 lbs.) I know that doesn't help matters, but even the doctors say that doesn't mean anything. any info would be greatly appreciated thank you!

by the way, I repair automobiles professionally, if a doctor can charge over $30,000 without finding or fixing a problem, why cant I?
