They Never Find Anything WrongWed, Aug 31st 2005
Hi, I don't know what to do. My husband is all was sick. He misses work a lot. He has had every test i think there is. He complains of headaches, vomiting, hurting in his legs and arms, and back, a few years back in was sure he had a stroke. He has had MRI,s and all kinds of tests, they never find anything wrong. I don't know what to do for him, he was told to go and get some mental help, but he wont. This is hurting our marriage a lot. He says that i have no compassion for him when he is sick. But its not like that, after a while of the Doctors telling you there is nothing wrong, I just don't know what to do.
