Does anyone here have #limbdystonia , UTI’s, #Overactive bladder and ringing in one or both ears?

FND enter my life in 2008, I wasn’t diagnosed until 2010 and I have dealt with many different types of symptoms, but these past few months have been hitting me pretty hard. In 2017 I woke up with my toes curled inwards. Long story short, I haven’t walked in two years, now I am getting hit hard with multiple symptoms, #severeendometriosis (on a wait list for surgery), ringing in my left ear (#Tintinitus ) since 3/25/2020, UTI for the whole month of May and I have been symptomatic every since. Had a ultrasounds of my pelvis bladder and my bladder/kidneys, waiting on my results (PCP, said it was #overactedbladder ). This is too much.

Doctors appointment not going how I thought

I have been dealing with a health problem for ten years without any diagnosis. I have seen so many doctors, spend a lot of money and have gotten no where. I ignored it, as I can go months between flare ups. But when it does flare, it is incredibly uncomfortable. This is a bladder problem, by the way. There are three possibilities; #InterstitialCystitis #PelvicFloorDysfunction #Overactive bladder . However, due to the other symptoms I feel in addition to the frequency make me believe it isn’t overactive bladder. The doctor I saw today seemed far too eager to dismiss the rest of my symptoms and my ten years of discomfort. Ten years of missing out on life because I need a bathroom everywhere I go. Ten years of missing road trips with friends. All my hopes that this doctor could help me went right out the window when he went straight to asking if I wanted him to write me a prescription for overactive bladder meds without any exam or diagnosis. I’m so upset by this and I’m feeling hopeless and no closer to a solution. What am I to do? I have a difficult time even working. How am I supposed to just live this way?
