Sensory Neuropathic Cough Conundrum

I am trying to come up with the out-of-pocket expense to see a specialist on November 14th. I have been dealing with this condition for over 2 years and it has progressed to me being unable to work or function but a few hours a day. I had surgery in August that was supposed to help but made things worse. Over the past year, every cent in my name has been diminished to almost zero trying to pay the bills and stay afloat. I lost my home, lost my job, and lost my pride. I was able to get a new place thanks to all if you, and if I can just get rid of this medical condition, I will finally be able to work jobs that require more  than a few hours a day. I’ve been waiting for my insurance to kick in to cover the costs of living until I get better, but the processing and application process takes months and by then, it will be to late to help. I have been to several doctors, surgeons, and ear nose throat doctors and nobody has been able to successfully treat or diagnose yet. I’m currently taking Lyrica for it but it has little effect. The specialist I need to see is going to cost $4200 and half of that is due on the first visit on the 14th. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.

This video explains my symptoms and what the current diagnosis is thought to be. It isn't fun. I want the old JTM back. The reason you haven’t seen me is because I can’t go out in public with this condition. I don’t want to annoy anyone or cause a scene. I’ve had the ambulance called on me before because someone thought I was in danger. I just want to be better. I can’t do this any longer.  If this doc fixes me, I have nowhere to go but back to the top. If he is unsuccessful, I’m stuck here in purgatory for a little longer until I can get a dignosis and treatment. Your gift much appreciated.
