That said, you need to see your doctor for a diagnosis and any treatment that may be necessary. As much as we'd like to help and answer your question, the only person who can do that is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination. Nobody can diagnose via the Internet.
