Tests: MRI Brain w/contrast - Normal (ruled out MS or Brain Tumor and other stuff)
MRI Cervical Spine w/contrast - Arthritis
MRI Thoracic Spine w/contrast - Arthritis
MRA Brain (arteries & blood vessels for pulsating tinnitus) - Normal
EEG - Normal
EMG - Carpal Tunnel both wrists (right pretty bad) I do not have a job that could have caused this.
EKG, Thallium Stress, Echo cardiogram and Heart Catherization - normal Thank God.
Two 24hr. urine to rule out Pheochromocytoma, and Systemic Mastocytosis
Countless blood work which ruled out Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, and countless other things.
Eliza test was negative
Thyroid ultrasound which shows multi nodular goiter, blood work okay and endocrinologists says it is fine my symptoms are from menopause and anxiety(I wanted to hit him)
Cat Scan with dye of abdomen and pelvis - normal except small lesion on kidney doctors said was fine.
Skin biopsies of rash - don't know just said dermatitis
Normal female exams - all up to date and good
Endoscopy and colonoscopy both with biopsy because of Barretts esophagus and a polyp - Normal (these are routine for me)
Vitamin D was quite low so they put me on that
Monocytes count was 13 should be 3-12 Doctor still said it is normal

Seen the following Doctors: Family, Internal, Cardiologists, Allergists, Rheumatologists, Endocrinologists, Gastro, Gyno, Derma, Physiatrist (PMR doc) and 2 neurologists.

I had Physical Therapy which helped me alot with neck and back stuff
Meds I have been on Lyrica, Motrin, Skelaxin, Cymbalta and different sleeping pills. The only thing that helps a little is the Motrin. I even wake up when I am on the sleeping pills and I have tried 4 different kinds.

I don't know how long I can go on with this head pressure, pulsating tinnitus, burning, numbness and lack of sleep (about 5 hrs. a night) The other symptoms come and go.

Thank you all so much for your responses.
