weight loss

I am male, aged 65, 6'3".
In 1987, I handled a vole and it bit my finger. I forgot about the incident.
However, year by year I lost weight. In 1987 I weighed 72 kilos. Today I am 56 kilos yet my appetite is perfectly normal.
In 1996, I had a burst duodenum ulcer.
In 2005, I had a second duodenum ulcer.
In 2006, I was diagnosed with emphysema.
In 2008, I entered hospital for tests to find cause of weight loss. Nothing was found.
Today, I had blood test. Nothing negative was found. Am awaiting a stool test.
I might add that every evening since 1987 I sneeze 3-7 times at the same time.
I am wondering if I might have contracted tuleremia.
I don't know where to go from here and am desperate to discover what is happening.
Can anybody help?
