Which autoimmune disease do I most likely have? I developed

This answer was rated:

Which autoimmune disease do I most likely have?I developed severe and apparently permanent adverse reactions as a result of Hepatitis B vaccine.
About 4 years ago I was completely healthy and very athletic before this vaccination and have now
suffered severe, debilitating autoimmune side effects from this vaccine. I get joint pain when I
lift weights in the gym, only on one side of the body, not in both arms at once, just the left.
I never used to get joint pain when I was lifting weights before the vaccine,
I used to lift 100KG but now I get joint pain when I lift 50KG.
I also have joint pain in two of my middle toes on my right foot especially when I walk on the stairs
bare feet. There's a measurable loss in stamina before the vaccine to how I am now, I experience breathlessness
much earlier when I do cardiovascular exercise then before I had the vaccine.
I have chronic fatigue and it is not improved by getting rest.
I have a dry persistent cough when there's nothing to bring up. I have abdominal pain on the left side
of the stomach when I sit down or when I lie down upright. It happens when I play video games or use my laptop.
Sometimes I get sharp stabbing pain on the left side of my stomach.
I experienced Psychosis due to neurologic conditions. I used to think the TV was communicating with me.
I suffered the residual effects of these symptoms for more than 4 years.
