After recent blood tests and years of various symptoms my GP has finally referred me to the Royal Free (just waiting for appointment to come through) after my Raynaud's has gone into overdrive and the recent blood test results (in conjunction with my clinical symptoms) indicate Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. I went back to my GP in desperation saying I couldn't wait until I got to the Royal Free for help as my Raynaud's is dominating my life (in a bad way) and preventing me from doing so much and I have finally been prescribed Nifedipine to see if it helps. Meanwhile I have been breaking out in hot, angry itchy red lumps on my elbows that died down leaving hot red dry rough patches on both elbows, itchy rash spreading from my wrists up my arms, and then I woke up on Sunday with a red rash on my leg with a huge blister! My GP just says it's better left for the specialist to deal with.
Has anyone else had blisters appear literally overnight? How did your doctor(s) treat this, if you received treatment?
I have no idea until I get to the Royal Free exactly what's going on but my main symptoms are Raynaud's, skin rashes, skin photosensitivity, bowel problems, gastro problems (I have Barrett's Oesophagus), joint pains, feverish, fatigue, sleep problems, mild depression (unsurprsingly!)
