Hi I am looking for help for my wife who is going out of her mind with her undiagnosed illness...

She gets fevers every 2 weeks, along with sever chills, and swollen lymph nodes in her throat. She is also suffering from vaginal and mouth ulceration. (fevers end up lasting for 3-4 days)

We have seen 8 different doctors who have not been able to come back with a diagnoses, and have had numerous MRI's and CT Scans, that have all come back negative. This has been going on since September 07.

She has Ulcerative Colitis (not sure if this is relevant or not), but has not had a significant flare up in years (her last colonoscopy came back clear, and the DR stated that if he had not seen it in earlier colonoscopys, he would have thought that she was fine.)

We are beginning to think that she may have Bechet's disease. But I am not sure if that explains the fevers and chills.

Any help is appreciated, because she is beginning to become manically depressed with always being sick.:(
