I have been bothered with my issue for many years and was able to answer the many questions. One question from my Dr. was asked that I have never been asked by a Dr. "what do you think is the cause of your problem". I was very impressed and happy to get that question. She then went into details on what treatment she was going to first recommend and then if not successful, what next. Everything she said gave me hope.
