Types of chronic infections?

What are the most common infectious diseases that I should consider?

About 7 months ago I became sick... Extreme tiredness, body aches, loss of appetite, headaches, eye pain, gastro intestinal issues. My symptoms changed daily / weekly - good days and bad days

Anyway... I became very concerned I picked up an STD. So I tested for every hiv, hep, syphillis (syphilis), GC, etc. out to past 4 months. Then tested for enteroviruses, west nile, parvo, strep, CMV, ebv

All negative

No issues with kidneys, cbc normal, Ana normal, sedimentation rate normal.

However, after 7 months - while better, still have gastro issues, darker urine, chest pains, muscle aches and tiredness
Also rapid heartbeat

Any suggestions -my PCP suggests eating better.
I have another appt with a rheumatologist but looking for other ideas

If your test results are looking normal and the regular docs can't find anything wrong, then I would consider getting all of your paperwork together and making an appointment with an infectious disease doctor.
