I am sixty-two years old have been fighting against the Behçet disease for thirty-five years. I had inflammations in the eyes which were treated with cyclosporine until the attacks successfully subdued, nevertheless I continue to drink Colchicine. In addition to the eyes' inflammations, I had skin inflammations, which had to be operated immediately to remove the pus and cysts of various sizes, for which I still get treatment until today, but to a lesser extent . Three month ago and all of a sudden my feet's joint begun to hurt with an inflammation, which looked very much like an lymphoedema. I consulted with my cardiologist and my nephrologist who agreed that the symptom may have been cause either by sudden increase in blood pressure or worsening of the kidney functions. Tests revealed that my heart is stable with present medications and no changes were find in the functions of my kidneys.
My question: should I consult with a rheumatologist? Is it common for my age to these kind of arthritis flares?
Thanks in advance.
