Hi everyone I hope everyone is well. I have just came out of hospital being treated as having coronavirus. Very high temperature cough and runny nose. Was in for 3 days with dehydration and pain meds as flare up as well. Fingers crossed I'm on the road to recovery but still need to stay at home for a while.

Thanks so so much for sharing your story, I think people on this site are desperate for info about how covid 19 might affect people with behcet’s/autoimmune diseases. Not only that, but to hear that you’ve recovered gives me real hope! Interesting there was a flare - not surprising but good to know. Thanks again for sharing and please do let us know how you’re doing in your recovery 💜
Really pleased to read you are recovering from corvid 19.
Might I ask a question about how the doctors managed any medication you were taking prior to you being taken ill, only I have read several times that immune suppressants would be withdrawn and wondered if you were taking a particular immune suppressants or other medication and if these were stopped and if you have still remained off any medication you had been taking previously?
Take care and look after yourself.
Hi thank you for your wishes. Yes the Dr's have told me to stay off my biological injection Cimzia and methotrexate injections until I feel well enough to start them again unfortunately I still have to take prednisolone 20mg daily double while I'm unwell. I was given IV steriods heavy dose when I was in hospital.
Thanks for the lovely messages I really appreciate it. I am getting better now still got the cough but no high temperature now. My temperature was 38.5 for 2 days which IV paracetamol brought it down until they wore off. My symptoms was high temperature cough stomach aches and sickness. Dehydrated and could not keep no food down.
