Brief Answer: Consider Behcets syndrome Detailed Answer: Dear patient, Thanks for the query. One of the diagnoses that has to be contemplated is that of Behcets syndrome, a condition characterized for aphtous ulcers in the mouth, lips, gingiva, etc that take unusual time to heal, associated with other manifestations, including dry eyes, dry mouth, skin rashes, ulcers in genital region, pains in joints and bones. It is a clinical diagnosis, and if these symptoms ring a bell, a Rheumatologist would be the best to see you. Hope that helps, wish you the best, Dr Brenes-Salazar MD Mayo Clinic MN Cardiology

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.

I have had canker sores in my mouth for the past 2 years, they have begun to spread into my throat and sometimes cause a secondary bacterial infection. I have researched everything and now am thinking its hormonal related.

I have Behcets disease and am being treated with Humira and CELLCEPT AS WELL AS PREDNISONE . I have developed pneumonia and was prescribed zithromycin on top of my other meds. Could this combo cause a weird smell/ taste in my nose and mouth? I first noticed it back a few months ago, but now it is constant and more pronounced. I also have ringing in my left ear, as well as intermittent vertigo . Could these symptoms be side effects of any of my meds or a combo of them?
