Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.
Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.
Before having a stool test I believe you would be better served to have a complete sleep study done.
I do not believe that, given the testing you have already undergone, that you have an undiagnosed problem with your kidneys, liver or pancreas.
Another good option would be to go to a major university teaching hospital for a second opinion.
At an institution like that you could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota USA is an excellent example of just such a place as this. That being said there are many excellent teaching hospitals all across the UK and I am sure that there is one near you.Does this make sense to you?

Have a good week and let me know how things turn out.
One thing for sure: The Professors at a Teaching Hospital will leave no stone unturned. Also the sleep study will bring a lot of good data to the table and help to narrow down exactly what it going on.
Take care and I hope you feel better soon.

In the USA you just call and make an appointment. (I am in the Upper Midwest of the USA)
In the UK I have been told that you need to go through your GP......
You can call your nearby Teaching Hospital and ask them what you need to go in order to be seen at their institution.
For your lip I would stop all the steroids and medication and use a mild lip balm frequently during the day. If they have Berts Bees balm in the UK I'd use that, but just ask around for a good one.
You might want to have a glucose tolerance test and workup up for any signs of diabetes......
I'm not sure what to do then on your lips....you might need to consult with a dermatologist and, possibly, have a biopsy done of the affected lip area.
