Hi all, Thankyou for having me here!
I’d just like to give some back ground ... I have suffered from Raynauds for a good few years I have three children I gave birth to my third 11weeks ago.. after the birth of my second child whom is 17months old I had terrible joint pains especially in my knees and suffer from migraines, I had went to my gp showed him some pictures of my circulation attacks and he said it’s vasculitus I had an ANA and it was “normal”, I then fell pregnant with my 3rd and I didn’t have any more investigating regarding the vasculitis “diagnosis” fast forward to now my son is 11 weeks and the past few weeks I have noticed several concerning symptoms a pain in my back left side it feels like it’s internal, the corner of my jaw is painful and clicking, my knees have been waking me up in the night from being stiff and painful, I had a migraine attack witch made my arms go tingly and numb and I couldn’t speak properly, I’m incredibly fatigued I feel like a dead weight ache all over and I cannot stand the heating it makes me feel sick and being on a migraine now I’ve noticed my face goes incredibly red and feels like I’ve got sunburn however I am actually not hot my hands feet will be freezing , the face flushing lasts for hours it’s not constantly there but it is noticeable even if I have make up on. I’m going to go back to my gp for further investigation regarding these symptoms however I’d like to know if this a butterfly rash or some reassurance that nothing sinister is going on I’m very anxious about it all. Thankyou for listening.
