Hello I have had Rheumatoid arthritst since 1888 however about 18 months ago I discovered I had a low white cell count of 0.8. I was feeling really unwell and that had dropped to 0.3 and I had the weirdest markings on my legs. My rheumatolgist thought it might be my hydroxychloroquine so took me off it and put me on steroids. The blood markings went away quickly.
Eventually I was refered to haematology and after loads of blood test I was diagnoed with the autoimmune version of Neutrpenia ad a problem in the bone marrow making new red blood cells.
Also while all this was going on I had a rash on my body too and still have . No one seems to know why this is. So does anyone else out there have this symptom too.
Thanks for reading. Jean
