In suffer from chronic lower back pain which I can usually keep under control.
About a week & a half ago, my back started to get really painful & continued to get worse every day, until finally it was making me feel sick with the pain & I could hardly move. I have been taking painkillers at its worst times.

I then started to have pain on my genitals on Tuesday (16th) & began to feel under the weather.

The pain in my back has been getting increasingly worse & by Friday (19th) I had a fever, sore throat, mouth ulcers, feeling sick & tired & increased skin sensitivity which seems to be more affected by temperature. I have also developed very painful ulcers inside my vagina & I am beginning to worry a little.

I haven't been sleeping well because of the back pain but painkillers seem to ease it off a little.

I have tried looking up my symptoms & I am not sure whether it is an STI or something else. I have heard of something called Behcets disease which has similar symptoms but I do not know.

Can someone please help?? I am 25.
