Default Ideas on why I keep developing chronic health conditions?

This is a long shot, but I'm getting pretty sick of this phenomenon so I'm turning to a more holistic approach. I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions on what the heck is going on with my body.

I rarely get sick, even colds. I have only gotten injured from training once in two years of high-volume training. I've been overtrained once, but it took a lot to get there and in general my health and recovery is very good.

However, for the past four years, about every 6-12 months I have a relatively serious health crisis. I get afflicited with some painful, annoying, uncommon but not super-rare (affects maybe 10% of the population at most) condition that doesn't really have any preventative measures, requires multiple months and often hospital visits to deal with, and then rarely bothers me again. Chronic UTIs for half a year, an ovarian cyst, kidney stones, hardcore job-related respiratory illness, trigemnial neuralgia. Now I've got another stupid health crisis on my hands and it'll probably require surgery.

These conditions are all disparate. No family history. They're not tied to major life events. There doesn't seem to be anything relating them. They just keep popping up. I'm going to take care of this latest crisis and then start counting down the days until the next one comes around, whatever it may be.

I feel like this is abnormal, but maybe I'm just frustrated. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Am I just unlucky?
