Doctors couldn’t find a cure
“Everyone recommended a different doctor and they went to great lengths to diagnose my illness. However, no diagnosis was made. I went to a lot of doctors to get rid of this feeling. As a last resort, I spoke to a psychiatrist. However, he has not yet found the reason by going to the root of the situation.”
