Hi, I was just diagnosed with BD. was in hospital for two weeks before the diagnosis.
Currently I'm on prednisone 60 mg and colchicine. I have had a blood test done and if results are ok I will be starting azathioprine in a few days. Has anyone else been on this and has it helped. Currently symptoms of mouth and genital ulcers, severe fatigue,and left knee pain have not responded to prednisone and colchicine. I feel like my only hope is this next med will put this in remission. I use magic mouthwash, and lidocaine
to treat pain. I am 65 yrs old and devastated by the change in my lifestyle.
Until the end of June I was doing tai chi exercises, and enjoying time spent with family and friends. Now if I try to do anything symptoms worsen. Please, if there is anyone who could offer advice, or share there experiences with this illness I would greatly appreciate it.. Until Two weeks ago I had never even heard the words Bechets!!
