unknown illness

I was infected with chlamydia by a prostitute in Phnom Penh in 2013. I was cured from the Chlamydia but afterwards I had symptoms that didnt go away.

These symptoms were chronic pain in my body. It was in areas approximately where the lymph nodes are. The pain was constant.

After two years in 2015 the symptoms changed to chronic symmetric joint pain. I had pain in my fingers, toes, knees, hands, feet and elbows. I also got extra pain after using my joints like pain in the knees after walking etc.

One year later in 2016 I have reduced strength in my fingers due to the pain. Indicating that the pain is not just painful but also damages my joints.

I have also since 2013 when I got infected had problem with dry eyes.

I have been to numerous doctors to try to get the disease diagnosed. I have been tested for known STDs and many other diseases. All negative. The only thing that they have been able to find is that I have CD8 activation. Apart from that my blood status is normal.

CD8 activation can be seen in for example chronic infections.

Please comment if you have any idea what this could be and the prognosis.
