I had a similiar problem, but stumbled onto a solution quite by accident.
I went to the Fibromyalgia & Fatigue Center nearest to me. My first visit was $100 and they drew 31 viles of blood. They do a very extensive range of tests and make sure it is filed w/your insurance company.
You have to wait 4 weeks for the results to come back, but prior to your second visit have your GP's office fax a request (you have to sign it)for your blood test results to be sent to them for your file. I didn't care for the doctor at the Fibro Clinic and had no intention of returning for a second visit. (that visit costs $500)
I finally found another doctor (he doesn't take insurance and you have to pay for the blood work yourself). I made sure that I had all of my blood work with me when I went for my first visit. He did ask that I have a few additional tests done but he sent me to a lab that accepted my insurance.
If you are living in Houston I'm sure there is a Fibro & Fatigue Center there. It is an option for having the bloodwork done if all else fails.
Continue to try and find a good doctor if possible.
I so understand your frustration w/doctors though.
I've met w/more than one I felt was nothing more than a trained monkey. No mind of their own!
