I'm sorry you are having a hard time and hope you get a diagnosis soon. Being ill with these kind of symptoms can be really scary, and getting a daignosis can take a very long time.

Given the inflammatory markers together with the symptoms, It certainly sounds like some kind of inflammatory autoimmune condition.


Here is a link to our Factsheets on Behcet's: Hope this helps and best of luck with getting the correct diagnosis and treatment. all the best.
