Hello @marybb, It must be awful when you are in pain and the only way you get relief is laying down. Sorry to hear that the doctors have not been able to find out what's wrong after all of the tests they have run. I don't know of any doctors in the St. Louis area but I believe there are several teaching hospitals which would be a good place to seek help. Here is a page that lists the ones for Missouri – https://www.healthguideusa.org/teaching_hospitals_missouri.htm. Hopefully one is close to you.
Have you discussed getting a referral from your doctor to help you?
Perhaps start w/ your GP for recommendations.
