I was doing some research on canker sores (I used to get them a lot years ago), I was informed that canker sores are not herpes. Then I came across some symptoms of behcet's disease, including genital and mouth ulcers. I was recently diagnosed with HSV2 and am wondering if I could have been mis-diagnosed with HSV2 or could I possibly have Behcet's Disease (as rare as that is...I am Asian by the way)? Another symptom of Behcet's disease is arthritis. Since I turned 30, I have been having pain in my joints...mainly elbows, knees and feet. Could I possibly have Behcet's Disease????
