Patient Comments: Behcet's Syndrome - Diagnosis

Question:

How was the diagnosis of your Behcet's syndrome made? Submit Your Comment

My immunologist mentioned that I may have Behcet's syndrome due to my ulcers in mouth, sores on body and fatigue like symptoms. He cannot be sure until I get back blood test results. I have had these symptoms for 8 months. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 2 years ago and am taking Copaxone 40 mg. I am feeling a lot better and sores on body are healing and the ulcers in mouth are not as severe as before. The ulcers in mouth are affecting my gums and are starting to recede.

I have had Behcet's syndrome for a long time. I have had problems with blood clots, MRSA, mouth sores as many as 10 to 15 at a time, eye problems, prolapse valve in my heart, degenerative disc disease, degenerative arthritis, fibromyalgia, no cartilage in my knee, swelling of the legs and hands, acne, leg cramps, a bone tumor on C5; I can go on and on. I was recently diagnosed around two months ago but yet no doctor has put me on any medication for any of this. After reading your post I am a little bit more concerned with this and I believe I will make an appointment with my primary care physician, so thank you for posting.
