Lots to consider...: Given the extensive nature of evaluation but persistent symptoms, several scenarios are possible: 1) you need further evaluation to identify missed pathology; 2) its time to take a break from testing & treat your symptoms (sounds like bad things have been ruled out already); 3) your symptoms may in part be "functional". In the latter case, please address stress, anxiety, depression. Best of luck.
