Hello all. Husband with PV at hospital today and at long last his red cell count is slowly rising after his major stomach bleed which they put down to aspirin. He has been complaining of red hot feet and legs in bed at night which awakens him several times a night. His consultant said it is erythromelalgia and the treatment is aspirin. However his stomach bleed was put down to aspirin last year. She has said a small dose every other day would probably be safe for him as he is on a stomach protecting tablet now. The red hotness is getting him down but he was rushed to hospital with the bleed and was very ill and it has taken a year of tests and bone marrow biopsies before his PV is now becoming active again.
Does anyone have any knowlege of this red hot leg stuff or aspirin therapy. Thanks
