Sarah, I've sent you a PM.
Really sorry Henrietta. You have helped so many people on the forum; I hope you are finding some comfort too. (((Hugs))) from me.

Just a thought....

I can't really offer any suggestions but I'm sure others will be able to. I do hope the next doctor can do something useful.
