I am a 58 year
women, I was diagnosed with Behcet's Syndrome in 1972 at National Institutes
of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. I was 32 at the time.
Before I was diagnosed I was a mess. I was admitted to the hospital about every other month. I was fed intravenously, because I was not able to eat. After I was diagnosed, I was on a prednisone therapy. I'm still on prednisone 2 mg daily. Now not only do I have Behcets, I also have Arthritis and Fibramyalgia. I don't know any body else that has Behcets, so I don't know what to compare it with. My Behcets was mostly blisters in my mouth, I was really careful not to get them in my eyes.
