Hey everyone, thanks for taking time to read my post!
The past couple of months I have been on a bit of a journey to say the least. After hearing all of your stories on the struggle to get a diagnosis for this horrible thing I am sure that is something you will all relate to.
I by accident stumbled across Behcets whilst frantically searching my symptoms.
I’m not sure if I fit the criteria so i’d Love to know more on how your symptoms displayed themselves and wether mine sound likely to be linked to Behcets.
Firstly my body has recently been covered with acneiform lesions. They are painless but sometimes very itchy. I have them dotted across my chest, upper arms, back, stomach and bum.
The second symptom that came up at the same time is what my doctor has diagnosed as genital thrush. It’s not painful, just a bit itchy. Are the genital ulcers related to BD generally considered to be painful? And could they be mistaken for thrush?
I do get mouth ulcers occasionally when I am run down but not to a severe extent. I’m not sure if that is not worthy though?
I also suffer from IBS. Although that’s not mentioned on the NHS website as a symptom I have seen some people mention it on here.
Any advice will be very well received
All the best to you all
