Question Undiagnosed Problem. Help?

I am 24 years old and have been having chronic health problems since I was 14. I'm tired and looking for answers because nothing seems to work long term.

I have type 1 diabetes and am constantly put on hold becasue doctors immediately dismiss any problem I have saying, "it's your diabetes". I'd really like to hear something different, because I'm 99.9% sure it is not.

What I'm hoping is to get some ideas of things to check for and hopefully get to a diagnosis...and an answer so I can live a better life.

In high school I started having stomach problems, pains running along the lines where your large intestines are. I also started having pretty painful menstrual cycles that have progressively gotten worse to the point where I was curled up in a ball for a day- Lortab didn't take the pain away.
I was diagnosed with IBS.

I had my gal bladder removed when I was 17 after testing showed it wasn't draining properly. The pain went away for about 5 months then came back.

I was also diagnosed with PCOS

I was diagnosed with a dairy intolerance.

My hair started thinning, so my thyroid was checked. Nothing.
I am always tired. I was diagnosed with Depression last year and agoraphobia with anxiety.

Now my symptoms are back in full. I'm not eating any dairy at all; lactose, casinate, and everything and still my stomach is in pain. The doctors have looked for cysts on my ovaries and found nothing. I've had ultrasounds of my entire stomach and found nothing. I've had both a colonoscopy and endoscopy. Nothing.

According to doctors, I am perfectly fine, but I'm not. There is something really wrong. I was doubled up in pain so severe just four days ago that I couldn't move and barely breathe.

I am constantly getting Urinary Tract Infections and Yeast infections as well as Tonsilitis, sinus infections, and strep. I never get just plain colds. I'm often dizzy and weak with achy muscles. I have been plagued thinking that no one believed me that I was in real pain and I wondered if I was going crazy. I know I'm not now, and I'm looking for answers after years of rolling over.

If anyone has any clues, please share with me?
