My friends wife had the same issue. She called the following link because the psychologist at the hospital (who BTW was a child psychologist) said she would never have a gun again. She was only held for about 15 hours and released. The place was https://www.psychologicalriskservices.com/il-foid-evaluation.html but be forewarned, they weren't cheap. You might want to PM Molly and read the posts pertaining to this issue on here. There are some references to friendly doctors. The 5 year thing on the FOID application means nothing. You have to be cleared by a physician, clinical psychologist or a qualified examiner even if it was quite a while ago.
PM Molly, she'll know the best way to handle this.
Thank you very much. appreciate your help
