User avatar Hi!

I see that your problems have not been diagnosed yet. But considering the fact that an extensive workup has already taken place, it would be futile to expect help from this forum. You may have to seek consultation from senior doctors in related fields. I am sure your doctor would be able to guide you to senior experts, if you ask for it.

Hope you get well soon,
