I have had Hsp since the last 9 months.The first 3 months were quite painful. I had severe abdominal pain, joint pain. I was giving my AS board examinations then. I had to take steroids to relieve myself from the pain. I was hospitalized due to my gastrointestinal involvement. I was recommented to take 60 mg prednisolone for a a month and to eventually taper off the doses taking about a year to completely stop my medication, however due to high side effects i had to stop after 5 months. 

Since then i have consulted different nephrologist, rheumatologists and have been doing different bloody tests. My hands look bloody due to the injections. There seems to be no end of this. It hurts even now. Whenever i get new rashes, my body feels numb and heavy. I have quite lost the interest to do anything at all.
