ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have suffered for years with no real diagnosis. I have seen several specialists and I’m currently being treated at Vanderbilt. I have had many surgeries, that I’m not sure were even necessary. I had a hysterectomy, gall bladder removed, appendectomy, 2 hernia repairs and exploratory surgery. I have had several different diagnoses, but none of the treatments have helped. I have finally been referred to a rheumatologist at Vanderbilt who believes I have Behçet’s disease. So far, the treatment hasn’t helped. I am on Cellcept and we tried Humira and it didn’t help. I am currently waiting on approval to try Otezla. I’m 47 years old and have been off work since April. I have horrible ulcers, or sores all over my body and in my mouth. I have diarrhea and extreme fatigue. I feel like I might finally be getting answers, but this has gone on for years. I just want my life back.
