Patient Comments: Behcet's Syndrome - Symptoms

What were the symptoms of your Behcet's syndrome?

Comment from: anonymously, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: March 14

I was diagnosed with Behcet's syndrome on January 2010 after 5 incidents in the hospital. I usually got it after menstruation every 3 months. Symptoms: my whole body was very painful, my wrists were sore and my lips got swollen. My cheeks got red and usually after 5 hours my whole mouth was covered with blisters, sometimes I got it on my vagina also. It usually lasts a week.
