Limits of medicine: You can request an appointment with a mayo physician on their website. However, realistically the chance they will find something that 8 doctors missed is extremely small. It may be time to look beyond western medicine... Yoga, meditation, acupuncture, massage, aromatherapy, hypnotherapy... Not having a diagnosis does not mean you can't be helped.

Many causes possible: You could have a chemical inbalance causing depression, a hormonal problem like low thyroid, or an infection like lyme's disease. You should see an internist in your area and they can sort out the info from your other specialists and tell you how to proceed.. Healthy diet and proper exercise may help.
