In brief: Sorry

Sorry to hear that you are having problems.
Sometimes you do everything right and you can still have a bad result. It sounds like you are following the right course. Sometimes when I have an aggressive bacteria i look at teeth and or periodontal disease to be the causative agent. Also consider blood test. When was your last physical? Hang in there it will get better.
