My problems started about 10 years ago, I've had bouts of iritis, joint pain that comes and goes, Kidney stones 4 times, proctitis twice, a recently diagnosed cataract in both eyes (I've had 1 lens implant and will have the other eye done within the next year) and this weird cough that comes and goes. It feels like pressure in my chest and I have to cough to release the pressure- it seems to come on with exposure to cold air, wind, or when I laugh alot. I am not a sick person, I don't think. I just have alot of weird things going on and nothing points to any one thing. I don't know where to turn or if anyone else has these symptoms.

Was your joint pain or iritis precipitated by a flu-like-illness or urinary tract infection?
