Hi, this is my first post on the Vasculitis site. My husband (52) was very unwell last September with a horrible rash from the waist down and bad abdominal pains. GP didn't seem to know what it was so I searched the internet for a similar rash & came up with HSP. Second GP agreed & he was sent to see a consultant. Many tests later (cameras, scans etc) they haven't found anything really nasty lurking (good) but did find patchy ulcers which could be due to the strong medication given for the pain or could be Crohn's. He's back on Omeprazole for 6 weeks before more tests.
He's much better than he was last September/October but gets the occasional relapse. Most of the info online relates to children are there any other adult HSP sufferers out there?
He did see a consultant who specialises in Vasculitis (& has another appointment with him in a few weeks) he said it would go but could take a while. What causes the flare ups, any ideas? I thought it might be stress but my husband thinks not.
Sorry to ramble on but don't know of anyone else with this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
