I would like you to have an open mind about what I am going to write.
The fact that you had so many ailments at 22 is a good indication of malnutrition. But I am not surprised. I you read what I read about the depletion in food of the modern farming. The fact that you benefited for a while from MSM is another indication of the malnutrition from poor/junk food. Because MSM is a natural element found on vegetables. You took MSM as if it was the magic pill. Unfortunately ain't no such things.
I suspect that you have, among other things, magnesium deficiencies. http://www.ctds.info/5_13_magnesium.html
Again, mg deficiencies is a sign of malnutrition.
You also learned that one mineral deficiency is reveled one after the other
>>that i treated a relative mineral imbalance with sulfur only to create a deeper imbalance in the process.. i follow a mostly vegan diet because it seems to irritate my kidneys much less..
One way to get both magnesium and sulfur (besides from eating mineral rich quality produces) is to take Epsom Salt (Mg sulfate). Take a pinch with your meals, and with your drinking beverages.
For the link between Mg deficiencies and some forms of kidney stones.
But you need more than that, you need to improve your nutrition and intake of a wide variety of minerals.
Consider the following:
As an agricultural scientist,
I would like to state that 85% of the minerals
are depleted in US crop soils. We only put three
(Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium) back into the
soils to grow our crops because farmers are paid
on yield, not content. The animal industry has
eliminated over 900 diseases that still plague
humans by feeding animals pellets that contain
45 minerals. There is no health insurance for
beef...the industry had to adopt a preventative
system of health care through nutrition or your
hamburger would cost $275.00 a pound. We eliminated
muscular dystrophy in our farm animals 50 years
ago through supplementation to name one. Why?
Muscle is meat...we cannot afford to have that
disease in animals.
From the above we see how minerals are important.
A way to take a wide variety of minerals at the same times is to take Epsom salt, Blackstrap molasses, Kelp, unfiltered raw apple cider vinegar.
Another indication of mineral deficiencies is to have an acidic lymphatic system. This can be measured easily by measuring the pH of the urine and of the saliva.
You can learn more about the Acid/Alkaline pH balance principles at the following CZ forums:

For what moreless said about kidneys and acidic conditions
For an introduction to moreless protocols
If you want to know more about the pH balance principles you can post to the A/A forum or the AskMoreless forum, I am pretty sure you will get some answers.
