Writing in between health issues

I've had back problems all my life. It was finally diagnosed as spinal stenosis: essentially my disks are squishing flat.

I've had a couple of epidural injections which have helped a lot, but I still have some other chronic health issues that have specialists shaking their heads. Is it gynecological? Is it digestive? Is it all related to my spine issues?

Needless to say, I'm getting tired of being tired and achy and having unexplained "problems" make my life miserable. I'm still writing, but I'm taking notes about the medical profession. I'd like to find a doctor who wants to treat ME: not my digestive tract, not my ovaries, not my spine, but the whole ME.

I doubt there's anybody out there who does that, but if you hear of someone, give me their number. I may be tempted to give 'em a call.
