My dad returned from holiday in Malta at the end of January with mosquito bites and an awful rash.
He has been diagnosed to have Vasculitis but by a hospital that knows pretty much nothing about it.
After two weeks of intense pains, swollen legs (unable to walk most of the time), severe stomach pains and chest pains...the local hospital have finally found blood clots in both lungs and both legs...and have finally admitted him to hospital.
However, he is still feeling dreadful, won't eat and is having very intense stomach pain.
The hospital seems ill equipped and lacking knowledge when it comes to this and are basically giving him fluids and blood thinners and that's it.
We as a family are really concerned. We are worried they are missing something.
Any advice would be gratefully appreciated and any contact for specialists in Vasculitis in the north east of England would be so so helpful.
We're a very concerned family.
