Hi ..... 7 weeks ago my right eyelid puffed up, it looked very unsightly and I went back and forth to the doctors and was told it was conjunctivitis, bletharitis, an allergy, etc. at the same time I noticed an odd "bruise" on my left calf, it didn't hurt, but kept on growing. After that I hurt my knee, I didn't remember doing it, but we'd been on a long walk with friends and I figured I'd sprained it. My knee got worse and worse and an odd reddish/purple "bruise" appeared on the side if it which hurt and is hot and angry looking and is still growing. The "bruises'" popped up all over the place, and both legs are covered, but they're not raised/palpable. The GP thought I had cellulitis and put me on antibiotics, steroids and antihistimines, and ATM my eyelid is back to normal, but nothing else's got better. I've been to see a dermatologist who thinks I have some form of vasculitis. She's done a skin biopsy and the results should be back in about 10 days. I've been told to take neurofen, sit with my legs raised. Today has been a good day and I feel quite well, but yesterday everything hurt, I felt as though I had flu and I couldn't get my knee comfortable at all.
Has anyone had anything similar ... It all seems so strange. The bruises also seem to fade and then get angry again ..
