There is a level of independence and knowledge that is wonderful in today's world of internet MD and medical journals online. Sure we need to look up what we can but you need to find a doctor who will be a partner with you on this one. Sometimes we can catch a diagnosis that they missed or contradict them with such evidence supporting your case (as I did with the stroke symptoms) but the alternate is true. We have to listen to them when they are so adamant that the self diagnosis you are suggesting is, to them, completely wrong.
Make sure you find a doctor who is not a push over to everything you throw at him/her but is one who will listen to you and accept that you are the one with the situation occurring in your life. That maybe you know and can hopefully give him/her clearer understanding of what it is that is happening to come to a consensus that results in a quality of life improvement for you.
Thus I leave you with this - research but listen.
