Surgical history only amygdalectomy-as a child and 2 Cesarean.We are from Greece and she also traveled those 2 years in romania turkey monternegro and italy thats why we also search about infectious diseases she did a lot of specific tests but nothing .Family history nothing important but we also check about rheumatological causes she got negative tests and gynecological is also fine.What more to think for????Any help please!!!thanks

Please do a search under the following :

Underground commerce is prevalent in most parts of the country (I'm in Greece presently), so programs such as the one in the above article, can  be implemented satisfactorily  only on "legitimate" cattle operations.
This may leave  a small number of consumers of dairy and meat products (goat and sheep) vulnerable to Brucellosis.
Some of your mom's symptoms are consistent with
Brucellosis which may be difficult to diagnose.
"Brucellosis symptoms may disappear for weeks or months and then return. In some people, brucellosis becomes chronic, with symptoms persisting for years, even after treatment. Long-term signs and symptoms include fatigue, fevers, arthritis and spondylitis — an inflammatory arthritis that affects the spine and adjacent joints."
