My father has been dealing with body wide pain, on a massive scale for the last 2 years now, and it's only become worse and worse. No one has been able to give him any kind of diagnosis other then Fibromyalgia, and Parkinson's. The Parkinson's is possible, but the Fibromyalgia isn't likely. His symptoms don't match other patients with the same condition. It's said that patients suffering from Fibromyalgia have good days and bad days. And my father has only Bad days, and WORSE DAYS. Exercise loosens his muscles and allows him to walk easier (after waking up) but too much will cause him to be in INCREDIBLE PAIN the next day, or later that evening.
He's been on heavy pain killers for the last 2 years with ever increasing dosages.
Amazingly, even though his condition is worse then that of your average Fibromyalgia patient, he's still working a full time job and helping around the house on the weekends. Though I encourage him to rest as much as possible and allow me to do the housework whenever possible.
I'm so worried at this point, as we have been completely unable to get any REAL diagnosis, as they've been doing tests and so on for the last 2 years, as he sees every specialist they can relate to his condition. But with the state of our medical system, every visit, every specialist seems to take between 3 weeks and 4 months to be able to go see. And all the while, in the meantime, he's suffering from pain and agony I wouldn't wish on my WORST enemy's!!!!!!!!!

I'd appreciate any assistance or idea's anyone might want to share with me. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF HOME REMEDIES, ACUPUNCTURE, CHI REALIGNMENT, RAKI, AND ANY OTHER HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE I'VE SEEN SUGGESTED IN OTHER THREADS. HE DOESN'T BELIEVE IN ANY OF THAT, AND NEITHER DO I. I am a man of science, and he a man of science and faith. I'm asking for legitimate medical conditions as answers here.
THANK YOU!!!!!
