Hi Dolly
I am sorry to hear that, it can be exhausting. I went through a similar thing with my son and ended up just putting him in bed with me which meant I could get some rest as if he woke up during the night, he would see me there and go back to sleep.
Prior to this I had tried everything, taken him to doctors, sleep clinics etc

I know lots of mums would say not to put baby in your bed, but honestly if you have tried everything else to no avail, and that allows you to be rested then I don't see the harm. He was back in his own bed before he started kindergarten at 4 yrs old. It's not like your child will be a teenager and still want to sleep with you, once they start school they will want their own bed like their friends have.

If you try her in your bed and she is still crying and not sleeping well, I would keep taking her to doctors until proper investigations are done as you just never know, there could be an underlying problem, and sometimes you need a 2nd or 10th opinion before it is picked up.

I became very ill in 2003 and spent 5 years going to the doctor complaining of my symptoms before it was diagnosed as ankylosing spondylitis when I went to see another doctor who ordered a particular blood test. Unfortunately by then, my spine had started to fuse together and I am now in a wheelchair, which may have been prevented if I had been diagnosed sooner so don't give up until you have answers.

Good luck.
