    I could find nothing on it. Does it have another name? Are you spelling it correctly? Let me know and I will research again

    :? Did you mean "nihilism"?
    definition: a doctrine that denies moral principles and social obligations.

    Thats the only thing I could find close to that word, it was in the college dictionary I have. Like saysusie says, maybe you spelled it wrong or it has a more common name its refered by.

    Maybe I looked up the wrong word?

    Dear Saysusie !
    All my tests was O.K. ( ANA ; dsDNA ; CRP ; ..... Lupus koagulant - negativ ) but I can fill how I lose my energy.I said that to my doctor and she wrote for therapy NIHIL. She wrote exactly same as I.
    I don`t know for another name.
    Please, look in wikipedia ("Nil per os " )there is
    so many professional words for me. Is it something for me?
    Thanks ! :lol:

    definition for "nil per os" is: nothing by mouth. Does that help any?

    So glad your test are good. Saysusie will probably have a better answer for you than I found. ops:

    Thank you cheryl_v because you try to find something for me, but I think
    I must visit my doctor again and ask some explanation for "nihil".
    If it is something good, I`ll give you explanation.
    I`m so glad that I found this forum
    regards ! :lol:

    Unfortunately, the ONLY thing that I could find that was remotely close to NIHIL was this:
    1) In psychiatry, the delusion of the nonexistence of everything, especially of the self or part of the self.
    2. Engagement in acts which are totally destructive to one's own purposes and those of one's group.
    3) Therapeutic nihilism, a disbelief in the efficacy or value of therapy, as of drugs, psychotherapy, etc.

    Did you mention to her that you did not like taking pills/medication or anything to that effect?

    I agree, you should see her again and ask her to explain what these notes might mean. Please let us know what you find out!

    Peace and Blessings

    Maybe it is an acronym? Is it English or Sebro-Croatian? Is it just the doctor's notes on paper or a referral for therapy?

    Doctor's chicken scratches can be mind-boggling.

    I am curious too, keep us informed Bobo.

    Be well,

    This is easy for a Latin teacher!! NIHIL means nothing in Latin. By writing therapy:nihil, your doctor simply meant that no therapy was being recommended at the time.
