Hello to everyone, this is my first post although i have been reading healthunlocked since my BD diagnosis last year. It is comforting to know that I am not alone although I feel like I am, especially with my family and friends. They do their best but as my doctor said to me " Doctors don't really understand this disease so it is hard to expect others to " I am 57 year old female and suffered with symptoms (mouth ulcers, joint pain, uveitis, skin lesions myocarditis and endocarditis) for several years before my diagnosis. I am currently on Azathioprine, Colcrys and Prednisone, which has just kept my flares under control I haven't been completely out of a flare since before my diagnosis. But the reason I am writing is now I have diverticulitis and was wondering if anyone else has had this intestinal issue. I'm a little down as i feel that I now have another aliment to add my list.
Thanks again for this post and all of you BD people out there !
