Hi can anyone give me some advise please.
I was told ages ago I have fybromyalgia, my GP did some research for me and suggested Bechets to the hospital this was instantly dismissed. I have good and bad phases of fatigue, pain, poor memory, and stiff joints. The reason Bechets was mentioned was because I get mouth ulcers and genital ulcers not constantly or as bad as some others I have read about but still painful. I mentioned Bechets to my dentist last week as my gums get sore, he told me I have gum inflamation, normally he cleans and polishes my teeth, this time he just polished them and told me I need to see the hygenist which will probably cost me £80 plus.
Would I have been referred to an ENT specialist if I had Bechets? and should I speak to my GP who unfortunatly is new and doesent know me. At the moment I have a flare of ulcers or as one GP calls them just cold sores.
Sorry to go on, I know there are many of you in much worse places than this but any advise would be good. I was given hydrochlorequinine for the ulcers and antidepressants for sleep this was about 6 years ago and I havent been back to the hospital since.
