It always starts with a case of cystitis..within a day or two my left eye gets red and swollen(A doctor did diagnose me with Bleph) and immediately i start to get the mouth ulcers. This has taken place about 5 times in the last year. Always in the same sequence that I have just explained.All this lasts about 5 days ...disappears until the next time. I saw a different doctor yesterday and she is the only one that admits that this is very odd.She sent me for blood work and has mentioned the possibility of a tissue connective disease. She said I fit alot of the profile for Behcets and/or Reiters syndrome but I do not have all the symptoms.
i have a history of mild depression and anxiety and take meds for both. Today I had a panic attack for the first time in 25 years...I forgot how awful they are. I am a very stressful personand was wondering if Stress can cause any of the above? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
