  • This sounds much like what my 15-year-old daughter is going through. I'm sorry that I don't have any answers for you, but I just thought I would let you know that you are not alone. My daughter has only had this pain for a few months, but we also have been to many doctors. We also know many things that it is not. One thing I would suggest is having the doctor repeat the bloodwork once in awhile. I would just ask him to add them in when he decides to do bloodwork anyway. I have heard of many people where these things don't show up in bloodwork at first. Does she have burning? Perhaps a neurologist :confused: Good luck! I know how frustrating this is.
