My symptoms starting developing around this time last year. In February I had a lymph node removed which was confirmed for "Castleman's Disease" pathology. This has resulted in me seeing every specialist possible but still no diagnosis.
In short, Castleman's Disease pathology can be caused by malignancy, autoimmune disease or Castleman's Disease itself. My haematologist is convinced I DO NOT have Castleman's or malignancy.
I found out about Behcet's after doing my own research. My symptoms have mainly been:
- Eye floaters (for around 6 months now)
- Random acne-like spots on my legs/arms/hands
- Joint pain (going for ankle arthroscopy next week)
- Cherry angiomas (blood vessel growths on my skin)
In the past 2 weeks, I have also developed a tender lump under the skin on my left shin. I also have discomfort when walking in my upper calf (just below the knee) and I am worried about DVT.
I had a random outburst of 5 mouth ulcers in a 6 week period a few months back but nothing since or before.
I do not want to be that person who goes to the doctor and suggests a condition in fear of being labelled a google hypochondriac.
Does this sound like Behcet's to anyone?
