I was diagnosed with Behcets about 3 years ago and I was prescribe a large dose of immunosuppressant's and steroids. Late last year (2013) I went for a food intolerance test. This test showed that I have an intolerance to diary and wheat. Since I cut both of these from my diet I have noticed a massive improvement in my symptoms. Once I start consuming them again, my symptoms reoccur I have especially noticed this over Christmas when nice food is hard to resist! The pain in my joints last night was unbearable, combined with a headache, mouth ulcers, constipation, rash on legs etc. One week away from these foods and it all clears up. Is it possible I just have a food intolerance and I'm taking all of this medicine unnecessarily???
