Hello everyone, I'm so glad to have found this group and try to get some help and answers,as we all know that most doctors,hospitals,and nurses are not too educated about this disease!! My daughter was diagnosed with HSP when she was 5 years old! She had all the spotting,bruising,joint pain,abdominal pain,inflammation,etc etc etc.It was a very bad case that lasted about a year but luck fully did not affect her kidneys! My daughter is now 8 and has been experiencing some severe abdominal pain the last few months and about a month and a half ago she started getting patch like bruising on her arms ONLY! They come and go every couple weeks and the abdominal pain is worst when the bruising is present! She also experiences joint pain in her left foot very often ! Dozens of tests,hospitals,and doctors later no one can tell me what's wrong She has all the symptoms of HSP but my question is and I have read and seen by experience that the bruising and or spots starts and occurs usually on the buttocks and legs but my daughter has only gotten spots and bruising on her arms only!! They are dark red and purpulish just like the ones of HSP.For that reason doctors are skeptical to say it's HSP .Can HSP start on the arms or occur on the arms only?? Thank you all in advance so much!!
