Recently diagnosed with vasculitis, waiting on Dr appointment for more information about my diagnosi
Posted , 5 users are following.
My symptoms started about 4 months ago with severe itching on my hands and feet, after two weeks of that the hives started. My Dr referred me to an allergist who diagnosed me with chronic hives, after about 8 weeks with no releif I went in for bloodwork and biopsy. Bloodwork came back totally normal but the biopsy showed vasculitis. I've been referred to a dermatologist and am waiting for that appointment to be scheduled, in the meantime I've been doing research and have been growing more and more anxious for answers. I'm curious about how I would find out if other organs besides my skin are affected, would that have shown up in my bloodwork? I do get headaches, chest pain and am always coughing but I have had athsma most my life so it's likely related to that. My hands and feet are always cold and I have had digestive issues for years. Definitely no scary symptoms like coughing up blood or blood in my urine.am I going to have to see more doctors after the dermatologist? And does anyone know of anti inflammatory diet having an effect on this condition? I'm also curious about if it can spread...so if it does turn out to only be in my skin do I need to worry about it eventually moving to other organs. Any info would be greatly appreciated, I've Googled all this but can't seem to find any answers
