I would like to ask if there is possibly a link or a clue that there is Vasculitis present when you have a DVT. I went to the surgery about my leg, I had a bad varicous vein there and I had been having lots of problems before that with my ongoing symptons regarding possible vasculitis anyway. The leg was showing classic symptons of a DVT red, swollen throbbing and I had bad pain and weakness and loss of sensation. GP did a thrombosis test and it came back negative. No further action. I was so worried I went to A and E, they too did the same test, no scan and tried to reassure me there was not a problem.
A few days later I had my bowel perforation and now cannot help thinking if they had treated the DVT seriously in the first place (I think they had me down as a anxious women and menopausal and being a complete nuisance I was a frequent visitor to my surgery and A and E as I knew something bad was going on- but could not prove it.) The outcome may have been different I am just so angry about the way I was dismissed and the fact that Vasculitis was suspected due to the Anca MPO autoantibodies and the DVT not taken seriously.
Has anyone experienced DVTs as a sign of a vasculitis problem?
