Autoimmune disease / collagen vascular disease

This is all the doctors can tell me that I have. No specific "disease" but put me on azathioprine. After 6 months of 24/7 oxygen, a pulmonary embolism, asthma, pneumonia and pleurisy pains - no answers. On prednisone too. Had open lung biopsy. nothing. prednisone masked results? What disease could I have? I've gained 45 pounds with the prednisone. I am on coumadin now too. Gotta get this oxygen tube off my nose. I'm going crazy. Thanks. JR
