just over a year ago my mouth outbroke with 10-15 mouth ulcers, my lips swelled, i was unable to eat, i struggled to talk and i was in alot of pain.
The amount went down, but i was continuously getting ulcers, say about 5. My mouth has not been clear of an ulcer for over a year. However, 2 months after i got another outbreak, this time with about 20, again unable to talk and eat etc. this happened again in april, at the beginning of June and end of June and then again in August. However each time got worse. The last time of an outbreak i had between 40-50 ulcers.
At the time of my first outbreak i started getting problems with going to the toilet. It was like passing a knife, it bled, really hurt. This was diagnosed as an Anal Fissure. I was prescribled several creams to get it to heal, but this did not work, in June i had to have surgery to try to get it to heal. This did work, until now, in November it has come back, i at the moment have 7 ulcers in my mouth. I have been tested for everything, form celiac disease, ulceritive colitis, crohns disease, bechets disease. My blood is normal. I have to keep having repeated appointments at the hospital and doctors. I am always tired and prone to catching any cold or infection going around.
My ulcers are so painful, i have been prescribed steroids to try and keep them down, they stayed down, but they havent gone, the steroids also caused acne! Can anyone help with a diagnosis. I am at a loss, i have searched everything on the web, seen so many different doctors, surgeons etc, and Crohns is what comes up, however i do not have dirrohea, so has been ruled out.
