Great input from all. My wife and I read and will continue to read everything and will continue to read anything new. Unfortunately, most of
suggestions such as seeing multiple doctors (none of which were willing to make a diagnosis), x-rays, testing for TB, etc. has been done.
Thanks to all who have or will offer their thoughts. I probably owe the mods a special nod for not pulling the plug on my request for input. Some of
the ideas and comments were truly unique, but I assure everyone I know to do my research before jumping into anything. Still, perhaps the mental
exercise will come in handy for someone else as they seek answers as well. To those I would also caution that the mods here are correct that we should
not seek or accept medical "advice" from a forum such as we have here, but the acts of compassion shown are truly moving and taken in appropriate
context, there may me some answers here for any or all of us.
One positive I would like to pass along. The docs have given me enough steroids that I'm pretty sure I'm stronger than Ah-nuld ever was by now. Pity
they haven't given me any relief yet.
