Hi I'm new to this. I have just been diagnosed with vasculitis from a skin biopsy after suffering from a very painful rash on my legs and more recently my arms for 8months.
It started when I was 7 months pregnant and I was originally diagnosed by dermys with erythema nodosum and told rash would disappear after delivery of my baby and I was left untreated. It didn't go away it got worse and changed in appearance hence the skin biopsy.
The truck load of tests have now began to find which type of vasculitis I have. I have been commenced on steroids (pred) which has dampened down the rash but the last day or so it seems to b creeping back has anyone experienced this?
I have no other symptoms other than this awful rash. Who Would have thought it would make me feel so down. Just wondering if anybody else's vasculitis began with a rash and what type they eventually diagnosed with? As I'm hoping I have no other organ involvement! (Of course)
It's nice to find this site as at the moment I feel very anxious and alone. This condition is so poorly understood.
Any replies would be appreciated. Thank you
