So, so glad to have found this forum. My almost-3-year-old daughter has been diagnosed with HSP and I'm just trying to research as much as I can to get myself knowledgeable. Her leg pain started 5 days ago. I have a few questions:
* She experiences severe headaches in the mornings right after she wakes up for about 15 minutes and then it goes away. Has anyone seen this symptoms? I'm feeling so helpless whenever this happens .
* The dr ordered some blood work immediately after they ruled it HSP and everything is great, other than the inflammation. My daughter's joint pain improved - right now she's mostly pain-free all day other than in the evening right before bed time. The dr reassured us that she's improving and that we just have to manage her pain. The next day the rash developed into the darker, larger rash and her face started to swell. Does this mean that the disease was still developing and not actually in remission yet?
* Is it true that abdominal pain typically started 1 week after the rash? So far we are not having any abdominal symtoms and I'm worried that this is coming!
Thanks for all your help. This is all very scary for my & my wife.
