Please help no idea what is going on

Just a couple facts before i go into the multitude of seemingly (at first) unrelated problems... when i was born i was diagnoses with a small hole in my heart (or heart murmur/vsd) the size of a pencil tip, when my doctor listened a few years later she claimed she didnt hear it anymore and may have grown over... have not looked into that since..

I regularly get kidney stones, the first one started at 16 and now I am 23 and have had one every summer for the last 3 years and 2 more before those ones, randomly.

I noticed about 3 1/2 to 4 years ago a lump in my throat under my jaw on the right side... to me it is not necessarily painless but sometimes i definitely notice it more than others.... it feels like a swollen gland, im assuming a lymph node or something.... it never really goes away, but it does at times appear more swollen and annoying/noticeable than others. on occasion i do also get a sore throat etc... but since the lump never goes away, i cant really state that its related.

I began having chronic, daily life-effecting pain in my shoulder, which over the last 10 years has spread all the way up to the base of my head/back of my neck, my shoulder blade, shoulder and neck get this ridiculously painful knots, even massage therapists and other friends that try to help ease the pain are always appalled at how intense it feels. The side that hurts feels weakened to them as they try to massage my left side instead, saying it is stiffer... so i have concluded of course there is an imbalance and the pain/inflammation has continued on for so long, that one side is over compensating for the other....
side note: i have also worked on computers for many many years, both in and out of work... many times excessively and i have spent many consecutive hours typing, writing and using a mouse...

lately as this chronic shoulder/neck/back pain has worsened to such a heights, my neck actually feels swollen, my ears have felt as though they need to pop... as if i am ALWAYS on a freaking airplane... extremely annoying and distracting as well as consistently uncomfortable... this has become a more noticeable issue within the last year and a half or two...

About 4 years ago i got my first abcess/boil on my upper thigh, lower buttox... this was beyond one of the most painful experiences of my life, and i prayed to never go through it again..( unfortunately this prayer has not yet been answered) it became infected im assuming and had grown to such a size, i could barely move, i felt like i was dying and it lasted over a month... eventually going away... its been so long i think i just kept it as sterile as i could.... no idea what caused it.
this past summer i got one on the under side of my breast, also painful not quite as extreme as the first, but very painful, very ugly as the first one, still have a healing scar, etc.
A few weeks ago i got one just below my panty line.... i assumed it was an ingrown hair as i shave.. it is now so painful and infected as i stupidly attempted to tweeze out the problem hair which i was certain i had found...

within the last few days i have felt feverish and weak, though my friends felt my forehead and neck where i felt i was burning up saying they dont think i feel warm at all...
I get naseau for no reason
constantly fatigues as I have always been a sleeper, even as a kid slept in till about noon or so
the more i sleep the more tired i am
i have suffered from headaches and migraines all my life and that has never ceased.
i often get random bursts of increased heart rate and become dizzy or feel faint
as well as become dizzy or faint for no apparent reason.

even more recently my jaw and teeth have felt much more sensitive, i need to go back to the dentist, as i fear perhaps a cavity filling or two (which i just recently had for the first time in my life last year) may have fallen out, my teeth feel different.

i have gone to an orthopedic he did an MRI of my shoulder only to check the rotator cuff when i went in about the shoulder neck pain.. rotator is fine, but clearly pain is not...

i dont know if all or any of these are related but im tired of always having something freaking wrong with me, and im constantly in one pain or another.... DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND LIKE SYMPTOMS THAT COULD BE DIAGNOSED SPECIFICALLY? or any other ideas? correlations? *** is wrong with me?
