Hey, I finally decided to register for this website.
I'am a 17 year old male, a junior, found out I had HSP on the 3rd week of July; now it have been 6 weeks. I think I caught a cold after practicing a day in the rain(which might triggered HSP).
The first week, I had swollen on my left ankle. A week or two later, I had swollen on my right ankle.
Rashes spread from my feet to my ankle, lower legs, then calves, then inner thigh, then outer thighs, then buttocks, then now working up around my penis, spaces under my belly button, the whole arms, spreading up to my fingers, now some under my feet. My knees were hurting and calves as well, I could barely walk last night.
I play soccer for my high school, now I'am sidelined and resting for almost 2 weeks; because I heard you should rest and drink a lot of water.
I have been to the doctor once a week, past 4 weeks. First 2 urine tests were perfectly fine, 3rd test I had protein in it. 4th test showed it was clearing out. 5th one I had(Thursday, Sept. 5th), I haven't had a call saying anything yet, I also had a blood taken from me that same day.
I haven't had any vomiting nor any pain in my stomach, no major pain past 6 weeks with HSP(I hope that's a good sign).
I had a contact with someone in UK, England. His cousin had it, it went away within around 2 months. I just wish mine would too, next 2 weeks it'll be 2 months.
I'am tired of it, it itches some nights, especially the red ones that grows over the purple rashes. Soccer conference is starting within 3 weeks, I'm the captain and my team needs me, as well. Most of all, I just want to be back to normal again, where I can go out and run and play again, I'am aiming to be a pro. but now I'm having a setback. I want my normal life back, this is just depressing lately.
WHEN WILL IT GET BETTER? HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN IT STARTS TO GET BETTER? ANY SIGNS? ANY FOOD OR ACTIVITIES THAT I SHOULD AVOID?
