And their findings?: The key to your answer is in the definition of "constant" pain ; fainting. If you are awakening from sleep due to pain, your symptoms don't come ; go but are unchanging ; ever present (or are actually worsening), accompanied by fever, bleeding, wt. Loss, then it's unlikely you have a functional process ; further evaluation is warranted rather than just taking symptom-based medicine. Don't give up!
