Mouth ulcer, herpes simplex and STD negative, behcet's

Since I was about four every time I get stressed out I get horrible ulcers in my mouth, from 20-30 at a time. I am now 22. The past year the have begun to even come out onto my lips . I have been to umpteen doctors/specialists but I have gotten a different answer if no answer at all every time. I have been tested every time for herpes simplex and every other STD and it always came up negative. My latest doctor thinks it s a condition called behcets but it s vary rare in the US. But he still hasn t diagnosed me! Does anyone have any other explanation? Its starting to affect my work (I m am in the skin care field and my boss wants proof on not contagious but no one knows what it is. Help?!!

even if it is behecets you are not contagious.behecets is a clinical diagnosis.
Oral ulceration, the hallmark of this disease, is usually the initial clinical symptom and can precede other manifestations by years. Ulcers are typically painful, appear in crops, and are nonscarring. For diagnostic purposes, at least 3 episodes in a 12-month period are required.
do you have ulcers elsewhere stands the question.
