I'm eighteen years old and have experienced horridly painful joint pains randomly within the past four years.

About three months ago, I began having a stabbing pain in my left lung region when I would breathe some of the time. Since then, it's progressed drastically. Now it's almost constant when I breathe, still in the left lung region, and a severely painful sharp stabbing. In the past week or so I've developed a rough cough that forces me to gasp for air causing a wheezing effect to occur. I've also coughed up a few small speckles of blood a couple of the times I've had one of these coughing fits.

My joint pains have come randomly for four years, and happen when I've moved too much, gone up stairs and etc., weather change, or as I said just randomly in pain. I also have difficulties eating without the food coming back up.

There's also migraines, constant fatigue, troubles sleeping, shortness of breath and weakness in my joints/bones (mainly knees, ankles, wrists).
Anyone have the same things going on? Lung cancer and emphysema do run in my family on both my dad and mums side, but I don't suspect my problems to be related to either.

My doctors just tell me to cut back caffeine intake; but that did absolutely nothing.

Any advice and etc. is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
