Can not get the right help!

I am desperate. I have suffered with chronic infections, lungs (COPD) sinuses, kidneys, liver, oral, ears, type 2 diabetes (though this went into remission)surgical scars opening for many years (with only a 6 to 11 week break from them in a year) Two years ago I gained nearly 70lbs in weight in a matter of 6 weeks (always been a good weight) and 8 months later, lost 60lbs in 4 weeks, I was hurling vomit and blood for 4 months with chronic diarrhea and blood, my stomach is now extended and belly button is more to the right side than middle. I had to have an Angioplasty and before this, I was getting electrical shock feelings through out the whole of my body, the worse was my head, one sided. Feet was excruciating, like walking on glass and bone pain in legs was so intense, I would scream like they were just broken. Joint pain all over body started with a vengeance and calcifications started growing all over me. Fingers and hands look deformed now. I was sent to a neurologist, he said I was stressing out and put me on anti-depressants (never took them) not stressed, frustrated I would say. He did nerve tests, MRI, CAT scans and a spinal tap. It came back with four lesions and small mass on the brain, nerve damage and a cyst looking thing near my brain. He said I was still depressed. My family doctor admitted me into the hospital and countless tests were done, my labs were abnormal, wbc was extremely high, CBC was off the wall and the heart factor was abnormal. Again, anti depressants, I was told I had Fibromyalgia. They found a twisted and prolapsed colon that dropped down into my womb cavity, that has three abnormal growths on the outside of it, Osteoarthritis, DDD and DJD. I had major back surgery 6 years ago for 3 imploded disc's in spinal cord. I went to see an Internal doctor and she said "FIBROMYALGIA" So I went to see a Rheumatologist and he did some blood work that had never been done and it came back with my Vit-D at a serious low and my potassium at a serious low.
And he said to me that they would of found all of this at my autopsy. :-(
Now they are doing surgery to fix the cyst thing in my brain next week and the other surgeons refuse to do surgery on my colon because of the mass infection in my body. Anti-biotics never work on me and I can not take pain meds (narcotics) The spinal tap came back clear, but a friend of mine, who is a nurse, thinks I have MS and maybe colon cancer. Why wont the doctors help me, if I am this sick? I am trying not to give up, but I can not take this no more. Can you please please help? Insight or maybe what I can do to help myself? Thank you in advance.
