So, I have a few questions. I've been sick since I can remember. It started with joint pain and swelling. When I was 12, I was diagnosed with epilepsy. Then right before my 13th birthday, ulcers in my intestines were found as well as horrible canker sores all through my mouth. I was then observed for Crohn's Disease. After a few years, the doctors decided it wasn't Crohn's, just ibs, but the symptoms of the ulcers never faded, they seem to come back every now and then. I was diagnosed with arthritis when I was 17, but it was always thought to be fibromyalgia because there was no obvious destruction other than the immense swelling and crippling pain. My joints would often get extremely red as well, mainly my knees, hands, and feet. As time went on, I kept noticing little red bumps that would itch like crazy! They seemed to appear during a flare of my other symptoms but I always brushed it off as allergies. I also have severe migraines and horrible stiffness in my neck, but I was diagnosed with Dystonia about 5 years ago at age 18, so I chalked it up to that and the epilepsy. After time, I noticed that the red bumps were on my "girl area". I still have bouts of canker sores and intestinal ulcers, also the red bumps seemed to start resembling pimples on my shoulders and thighs and chest area. I always thought maybe it was just razor burn, until the sores started resembling pimples down there as well. I ran straight to the doctor thinking I had herpes. I was scared to death! She said that it didn't look like herpes, and upon testing, it showed that it was not any kind of std. This past week, I've been sicker than usual, and I know I'm having a flare, but the sores seem to be worse than ever, and I have no idea why. I've been extremely stressed lately which can cause my normal health concerns to flare, but then someone mentioned Behcet's to me. I called my doctor, but haven't heard back yet. I itch like crazy, and the ulcers are bad and annoying, and yes, EXTREMELY embarrassing! Could it be Behcet's?? My scalp has had issues with itching before many times, and I found a sore on my actual scalp the other night, didn't think much of it, but I guess that's normal for behcet's?? I'm kind of lost here. I know nothing about this disorder, and all of my health issues match these symptoms. I'm kind of scared. Do the lesions hurt or itch?? Is that normal?? And what exactly do they look like? (Any pictures would help as well, the Internet describes them but it's hard to know without seeing them) How do they heal and how fast do they heal?? What can I use to help them?? My veins in my arms also tend to poke out a lot, and it looks kind of freaky. Idk if that's a part of it?? Every time I get an IV, it also leaves a red raised bump, like the ones on my shoulders, is this normal??.. My eyes are also always dry, some days worse than others. I try to wear my glasses to keep the air out of them, but that doesn't work. They water a lot and are always irritated. Sometimes, they get red and it almost looks like I'm high. Most times, all I want to do is just close them because they're that irritated and eye drops don't seem to help.
I'm sorry this is so long, but I need help!! Please, any advice is so greatly appreciated!
