    You will go on steroids which will control vasculitis twice, PAN & GPA which I still have, since 5 dont worry, you r doctor should have referred you to a rheumatologist and taken a whole host of blood tests.

    I understand how you feel. Just think about it like this your doctor has found that you have this problem and will now help you deal with your vasculitis so that's a positive. I have a form of vasculitis called polyarteritis nodosa which I've lived with for 9 years I was diagnosed at 40 years old. I had chemo, steroids etc etc and yeah you feel crap but you just learn to deal with it day by day. Hope everything goes OK.

    Its seem you need more vitamin C and to encourage healthy red and white blood cells.
