it could be an abnormal immune response to something you came in contact with in 2010/2011

if that was the case it will be very difficult to find a therapy.

try with a Immunologist.

are there values out of range in your blood tests?

the irritability is probably triggered by phobia. your perception of danger and fear has been altered due to sickness. you perceive the others as danger 10x than normal.

Addison's disease (primary adrenal insufficiency) is a likely diagnosis.  Addison's disease is a rare condition (1 in 100 000) where the
adrenal glands gradually are destroyed. Addison's disease is when the adrenal glands don't produce enough of the hormone cortisol and in some cases aldosterone.

Around half with Addison's disease will develop another autoimmune disorder.  The most commonly associated with Addison's is a either hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. Other recognised associations with Addison's disease include premature failure of the ovaries, insulin-dependent diabetes (type I diabetes) and parathyroid deficiency.

Medical studies estimate that around 5% of individuals with Addison's disease develops pernicious anaemia.  A much smaller proportions of conditions are estimated to develop with Addison's disease such as vitiligo, coeliac disease, alopecia, myasthenia gravis, thrombocytopenia purpura, Sjogren’s syndrome or rheumatoid arthritis.  

Excerpts from the article "Schmidt's Syndrome: Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome 2" by Elaine Moore:

"Schmidt’s syndrome, which is also called Schmidt syndrome, was first named after the doctor who discovered the coexistence of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Addison’s disease in one of his female patients in 1926. Today, the term Schmidt’s syndrome is also known as autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type II.

Symptoms of adrenal insufficiency include muscle weakness, apathy, fatigue, appetite loss, weight loss, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, low blood pressure (hypotension) that worsens when standing (orthostatic hypotension), hyperpigmentation or bronzing of skin (melasma suprenale), diminished ability to conserve sodium and excrete water, depression, irritability, salt craving, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), tetany (condition of muscle spasm caused by high phosphorus levels), diminished attention span, and numbness of the extremities due to excess potassium (hyperkalemia)."

Go to the doctor/hospital and demand a Differential White Blood Cell count. if the doctor cannot identify the problem after that he needs to go back to his first year in college

I believe you should get evaluated by an endocrinologist- a neuroendocrinologist is the best kind.  

You are exhibiting numerous symptoms that could indicate you may have something that is quite common- a pituitary tumor.  About one in five people have pituitary tumors and some of them are functional, such as the prolactinoma, which causes breast milk production (you mentioned leaking breast) and others are non-functional and can grow to a size where hormone production is being depressed.  

You should get a complete endocrine hormone work-up.  Likely, red flags will demonstrate to the endocrinologist that they should order a dynamically done pituitary MRI, with and without contrast.

On your other post, you mention nodules growing.  Is this on your adrenal glands?  If so, you might even have multiple endocrine neoplasms- please find the best neuroendocrinologist in your area and get a referral to them as soon as possible.

Sounds like a lot of Lyme symptoms!!! Get tested for it! If not, could be hormone imbalance (adrenal or another gland out of wack).

Also, have you had an MRI? I know pineal cysts can cause vision changes and headaches.
