Conditions with symptom: 'recurrent ulcers'
I have recurrent ulcers on the side of my tongue mainly in one side, the ulcers are always there but I get periods when they are not as sore then they seem to flare up and be really painful for months. it has been like this for over a year. GP treated it was oral thrush treatment but it hasnt made a difference. what is it? why does it occur and how do I get rid of it?

I was diagnosed with Behcet's disease in 2010 when I was 14 years old. It began with severe mouth ulcers and all the other symptoms shortly followed. However, this site says that there is a regular occurrence in mouth ulcers for Behcet's sufferers but I have not had a flare up for 4 years now. No more ulcers since that dreaded time in 2010. Is this also common? Fingers crossed it will carry on this way!
I went almost years without a break from oral lesions.. At that point I was diagnosed and the doctors started to try different medicines... I was put on steroids and it stopped the oral lesions almost completely... Could medicine be the reason for you not having them? Also, stress is a huge trigger, maybe you have been less stressed?
HI!!! I know that ulcers on the walls of our mouth and on our tongues are very common like stated above, however, i suffer from them quite frequently, causing me alot of discomfort. So I would like to know if there is anything that causes me to have such frequent ulcers. thanks

My son, who is 11, is now having his 7th episode of shingles. They were confirmed as shingles by skin scrapings & biopsies, as the doctors & dermatologists said they couldn't be & didn't look like shingles. Also he gets them in various body parts in one outbreak, which I know is unusual. He has been tested for HIV & screened by immunologists yet no-one can find a reason for the recurrent outbreaks. He is on 800mg Aciclovir 4x's a day for 2 weeks then a prophylactic dose of 400mg twice a day indefinitely. He has an already complex medical history - bilateral CDH (required tenotomies, closed then open reduction, and finally bilateral femoral osteotomies), Ehlers-Danlos (Hypermobility type), Phimosis (req'd circumcision), Undescended testes, Inguinal hernia, Asthma, Recurrent acute croup attacks, Eczema, Meares-Irlen Syndrome, Scoliosis, Leg-length discrepancy, Dyspraxia. The recurrent shingles doesn't cause him a great amount of ill-health but he misses more school & we are virtually housebound. Obviously I worry about what us causing this, and with all his other medical issues, I'm at my wits end. Any help / advice would be gratefully received.
there is an ehlers danlos support group i think in the uk; try googling it. everyone is v nice and most are women, some with affected children. i am 58 and have edhypermobility too; mostly it has gotten worse w age and i am v v tired, but i also have other conditions, such as hep c. i had to have 7 c-spine surgeries as my spine wd not stay upright due to the ed and so was crushing the spinal cord. the operations were not at all fun but did stop me from becoming paralysed.ispend most of my time now in bed due to fatigue and pain but used to ski and horse back ride.there are handicap horse lessons which can help, inc psychologically. do what you can to keep him active now since it tends to get worse. get him computer pals, and def. check out the ed site. there is also a usa site and info on youtube. good luck!! lisa
I am 17 years old, I've only had sex with 1 person, my boyfriend, and deffinatly know he doesn't have any STI's but just recently I noticed these ulcers down below like mouth ulcers and am very worried whether it is herpes or not. I've got an appointment next Wednesday but worried that by then it will all be gone and then they'll say to wait and come again next time. They are very painful and hurts when i walk, get up and sit down. any help? or advice?
I'm am also 17, have only slept with one boy (who I have now been with for two years) and was unlucky enough to have the same problem. Mine did turn out to be herpes, and I was told that it was likely my boyfriend had got it from previous sexual relationships in the past, but hadn't shown any symptoms. It is very painful, and not a nice experience especially when you don't deserve such rubbish luck, but the symptoms quickly go once you take the course of pills. As sorry as I am for you, it makes me feel a lot better to know I'm not alone with this.. hope it's the same for you.
last year i had 2 episodes of bacterial vaginosis and a recurrent episodes of thrush, i had swabs to confirmed this. i kept trying to work out why i was gettign recurrent thrush and bv twice, i did some internet research because my doctor unset abit trying to blame my boyfriend cheating, i did a diary to try and connect it to sex but it wasn't. i then found someone wrote saying they had the same thing and stop their pill (yasmin) and it stopped, i was on yasmis so i stopped this in february of this year, everything was fine and i didnt have any thrush or bv. except now a couple of weeks ago i had thrush and now ive got the fishy ordour of bv but this time i have pelvic pain without, what do you think could be the reason of this?
I have about 3 ulcers on my stomach. I've been in extreme pain for so long. I throw up blood quite a lot and I've had blood in my stools too. I've been to the hospital but they only gave me medicine that doesn't help and took some tests. I'm somewhat anemic. When I go to the hospital/doctor/er they say they can't do anything about my bleeding ulcers or pain. What doni do?
Look up the SCD (specific carbohydrate diet) lots of networks and things on the Internet and also a book by Ellain Gottshall called breaking the vicious cycle. If you are not severe enough for surgery this could help you before that happens. I've had the surgery and I'm going to try the diet further down the line. Good luck
