A. I am so sorry to hear than you and your sister are having such a difficult time. I cannot do much for you over the Internet but I can suggest that you try to get her to another doctor and have her re-evaluated. Or you can try taking her to a hospital and have an emergency room doctor evaluate her immediately. I wish that I could be more help to you. Please take care and do try to get your sister into see someone else immediately.
