My 11 yr old daughter was diagnosed with HSP around 6 weeks ago. She had rash on her legs and elbows, vomitting, diarrhea, kidney infection (protein in urine), abdomen pain and join pain. This is her second recurrence as she got HSP once when she was 3 yrs old (though it went away at that time in 3-4 weeks and there was no kidney infection).
My daughter is now on a strict diet of fruits/vegetables and has cut out diary, gluten, sugar, sodium from her diet. She has also started acupuncture. I tried fish oil but stopped it as the fish oil tablets caused diarrhea. She has not taken any steroids yet.
Currently the HSP seems to be in relapse as all her symptoms are gone except for joint pain in her ankles. She has missed her school for over a month now and we are hoping to send her back to school as soon as her joint pain eases.
I wanted to check whether anyone else has had a similar experience where the joint pain was the last symptom to go away. Was there anything you did to relieve the pain or to make it go away quicker ? Does the joint pain cause any long term issues?
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for the help.
