We can see you were first, Fidelis, you have a little #1 to the left of the date and time.
And to the OP, I hear that that's not too uncommon, which is really sad, but true.
Point of internet is to share info. A lot of people have diagnosed themselves with things that doctors have been unable to figure out. In complex cases looking for an on line article or a discussion might not be a bad idea and might be used to point the doctor in the right direction. Doctors are still people and they can't memorize the entire medical dictionary and all the complex interactions between symptoms, diseases, medications etc. so they use whatever they can to speed up their search for your disease or condition. Be thankful that your doctor took the time to actually find out whats wrong with you. They usually have their own databases to go through but with unusual things it might be tough to diagnose without going outside the box.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
