Hi, I was diagnosed with Behcets, finally, after 15 years of symptoms, mainly migraines and ulcers. I have lost partial sight in on eye because of inflammation. I was put on a large dose of prednisolone, then Azathioprine along side. Reducing the pred slowly now, on 150mg Aza. Wonder drug, that is all I can say. No ulcers, headaches etc. Started taking in June last year , six months in I have had no headaches ,ulcers etc. Just a thought, I found that anti inflammatory meds for headaches etc gave me cronic ulcers. Stopped taking those a few years back and it did reduce the number and severity of ulcers. Good luck, keep us posted.


Happy New Year Pete11. Have you got an appointment with Liverpool? If it isn't soon, you may need to visit an eye A&E. Good luck and hope you can see someone quickly.
