Not sure what is wrong

I haven't felt well since 1992. I had a retinal detachment in 1990 and a cleral buckle to re-attache it.
In 1992 I was in a serious accident that left a large bruise on my back but x-rays at the time were fine.
In 1993, I had Bronchitis for a full year that turned into walking pneumonia.
I developed serious anxiety and blood pressure problems in 1996. Had a reading of blood pressure of 220 over 140. I did a 24 hr urine test for possible adreanl gland tumor that came back positive and so they rushed me to the hospital. Subsequent test including urnine test came back negative/inconclusinve.
They decided to treat my hypertension with a beta blcoker but did absolutely nothing. They later put me on verapmail(calcium blocker) that seems to keep my bo around 140/90.
I was around 27 yrs old at the time. I am now 37 years old.
I got tired of feeling like a cry baby and resigned myself to my low libido, new agressive personality, etc, etc bc I was tired of feeling like the doctors just thought I was a hyper condriac. I figured I'll either die or get some real symptoms some day.
In the last year or 2 I have gotten some new things that make me want to try to push towards a diagnosis again.
I have developed 60 or more new moles in the last 2 years. One of them was the size of a dime on my pec muscle and turned into vitiligo within a month and now is just a quarter size whit spot with white hair. I developed angiokeratoma on nether-regions.
I find myself with sleep apnea waking up every hour or so gagging for air.
I get green stools frequently although I dont drink purple drinks, eat greens, or other common things that cause green stools.
I have had chronic diarehea for 10 years. (yellowish). I have not had a dark stool in 10 years.
My job is 100% travel but my vertigo is causing my problems and anxiety lately when I fly.
The hair all over my body has gotten much longer and I am getting patches of hair on my back(not on moles) that seem odd.
I gained alot of weight escpecially in the mid-section but not anywhere else.
My question is who should I go to first. Family doctor, dermatologist, endocrenologist.
I have no health insurance so I need to be strategic about whom I go to or this will go nowhere fast.
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
