Hello, im wondering if anyone can help me please
Ive had many health issues and during one investigation the dr mentioned behcets, so I was hoping someone might be able to help as so far all the Drs have been useless!!
At the time of the investigation it was because I got flare up in the never regions- the Drs were all mystified! This particular dr asked about mouth ulcers and linked the two with behcets but at the time I didn't suffer with them. Now however I am.
My question to you is - does any or all of this sound like behcets to you?
Here is a list of some of my problems
For many many years I have had joint problems, incredibly painful and stiff knees and hips.
My upper thighs are very tender - more so than any part of my body and feels pain very easily even with the slightest pressure.
I get headaches all the time and spotty vision.
I have a very bad tummy- the Drs brushed it off as ibs - but I have no trigger! I'm bad every day all day!
My lady parts flare up and get very sore, red raw. Again no obvious reason as to why.
My hair falls out.
I get very tired very easily.
Night sweats and restless legs.
If I get a cut etc I'm slow to heal and ALWAYS get infected
Recently my mouth has got very sore too, I've been to 2 chemists but neither have a clue (unable to get a Drs appointment!!)
Does this sound like behcets to you? My Drs have been useless so far, so if it doesn't sound like it there is no point in me fitting an uphill battle with them for no reason!
I've attached a picture of my mouth.
As much as I do NOT want to be poorly and in pain all the time - I would like to have a name for it. Without a name, I just feel like a pathetic hypochondriac.
Thank you for any help you can give me
