Recurrent Infections after traveling


Q: I have been sick for 2.5 mos now. I went to Vegas in October and when I returned I got sick with pneumonia & pleurisy.. I've since had bronchitis 2 times, mono, the flu and sinusitis 2 times. I've always been healthy and strong. And now I am constantly sick. Something is affecting my respiratory system all the time. I have had multiple chest X-rays, been tested for Lyme disease, CBC is good. Kidneys, liver, pancreas, and spleen all good. Had a brain ct that was normal. D dimer is normal. Pulmonary angiogram is normal. Did a Methacoline challenge for asthma and it was normal. No auto immune diseases showed in blood. I don't understand what this is. Everything looks normal but I continue to be sick with my lungs. What is my next step here? Where do I go now? I am miserable. And doctors that I've seen look at me like I'm crazy because they can't believe I'm back in their office sick again. So my question is what now, where do I go from here?

Symptoms:  Swollen frontal neck lymph nodes (tender)
Swollen groin lymph nodes
Swollen chest lymph nodes (tender)
Swollen lymph nodes in back of neck (tender)
Swollen auxiliary lymph nodes
Lung pain all the time (sometimes wheezing)
Joint and muscle pain
Sinus pain fin forehead and cheekbones
Overall lethargic feeling
