Dear Anonymous. The pleural effusion which you had, has nothing to do with Bekhams Disease. Also, the blood tests that were done, could not have indicated that you have Bekchams Disease. Here is some information on the only Beckhams Disease that I am aware of.

Bekahms Disease is a condition named after David Bekham, the famous English soccer star who, during 2006, came out and told the world that he is suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). This, according to him has had a major influence on his life in that he repeatedly places magazines, etc in neat symmetrical patterns. According to him, the OCD is also the reason for his many tattoos - he is addicted to continuously feeling a tattoo needle on his skin. I would suggest that you request your doctor to refer you for appropriate diagnosis and treatment.. (MCH).
