Thank you for your time.
This sounds terrible, I can't make a guess what you have but from our family history I would suggest you contact the Immune Deficiency Foundation at www.primaryimmune.org
They are free and have lots of services including a list of immunologists in your area. There are 150 different types of immune deficiencies and your symptoms may match one or more of them. They can also recommend testing that will verify or rule out an immune deficiency. From experience, I know that it usually takes hundreds of doc visits to get this diagnosis. Unfortunately most docs don't have training in this area. One out of 1,200 people has an immune deficiency.
In the meantime if you don't take vitamin D3 I would recommend a dose of 6,000 a day. It is cheap to get and available at Costco, Walmart etc.
More info on the many things D3 can help with or cause if someone is deficient is at www.vitamindcouncil.org They also have free info and articles from aroung the world about the many uses of D3. To check your D3 levels have the doc add them on your next blood work. Your level should be around 50 -70 to have good health.
