I was diagnosed with oral and genital ulceration syndrome when I wa at university after being hospitalised with severe and extremely painful ulcers in my genitals. I was under a speacialist but had no other symptoms at the time and they stopped altogether whilst pregnant. ( I often say giving birth was a breeze after the expereince with ulcers I had.) I am now a student nurse but I have been getting more and more pain in my wrists, thumbs and hips, oral and genital ulcers and skin lesions have appeared on my arm and face. I am worried how this is going to progress and how it will affect my ability as a nurse. When I am at work I get crippling pain across my lower back and hips and feel my wrists have minimal strength. I am no longer under the speacialist as I was discharged when I was pregnant. I dont know what I should do, should I just wait till the symptoms affect me or go and get reffered again.
