Hello everybody, I have a rare disease call Neuro Behcet’s and I have Autonomic Dysfunction.  This affects my mobility and stops my organs working well.  Behcet’s is a type of Vasculitis.  My friend Jess, introduced me to the community today, so we’ve both joined together xx

    Hi @Sharon453 - Welcome to the community; it's great your friend Jess has also joined us all here. Must admit whilst I knew about Behcet's disease, I didn't know there was a neurological form of this, & I've been looking online to read more about it.
    I have dysautonomia too due to Chiari 1 Malformation, which affects a few of those with my heritable connective tissue disorder (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome).
    Thank you both for joining, & I hope you enjoy looking around. You could try the 'All groups' link to see other sections here & join in any discussions you wish. Altho' you're both rarities, you will find there are 'some' similarities with others here with other disorders. Anyway, it's always good to chat, & you'll find this a very supportive & friendly place to be!

    Hi, thank you for the welcome.  It was Jess who told me about the group so it’s nice to join knowing someone.  We are both chatty so I’m sure we will fit in well.

    At the moment my son is moving house, and I’m on dog duty, so this is just a short note to say I look forward to chatting and getting to know people.  

    If if anyone has any questions about Behcet’s please feel free to ask. 

    Thank you you again and hopefully we can speak soon xx
