Returning : Returning to the er is unlikely to help make the diagnosis. Er's are set up for emergency situations, and they cannot perform complicated testing as you know. The best thing is to establish with an excellent primary care physician, either an internal medicine or family practice physician. However, you need to know that there are some conditions that cannot be diagnosed by current technology, and it is a matter of managing the symptoms. While that is a frustrating situation, it is reality, and is something to consider as you go through this process.
