My mom took DES to keep from miscarriing me. I had recurrent strep as a toddler which caused mitro valve prolapse. Then got topped off w a kidney infection w a high temp rheumatic fever wasn't diagnosed but.... I've had ulcerative collitis since a teenager also recurring kidney infections all my life I average 1 a year now at 45, also pnuemonia 4 times the last 6 years also a curved spine which causes hip and back pain. I've had joint pain for years but this past year starting with my feet joint pain has moved all the way up through my body. Then the cluster headaches started at the base of my skull migrating like it ran along vessels in my head. I've been checked for crohns, lupus, and RA all negative. Also heavy periods and strange nodules one on a finger and one on a toe. Im fatigued. And at the end of my rope any suggestions?
