Hi there! I'm new to this forum and on the 20th November I was diagnosed with pr3 small vessel vasculitis (extra renal syndrome). Prior to this diagnosis, I was experiencing a tender scalp, lightheadness, ringing ears, nosebleeds, heart palpitations, nightsweats, gi problems (diarrhoea sometimes with blood), foot rashes and reccuring toe infections. Back in October I was admitted overnight in hospital for sinus tachycardia but discharged as my bloods appeared normal, except for my ESR which was 100. In the following weeks, I had a 48 hour Holter Monitor and an echocardiogram which came back normal, although I still experience palpitations on a daily basis. I have also had a chest X-ray which came back normal. On Tuesday I had a flexible sigmoidoscopy to determine the cause of my gi troubles. 3 biopsies were taken and doc said there's a possibility it could be Colitis. Today I had a head MIR and will be seeing my consultant in 10 days to discuss results. In terms of medication, I was given 500mg IV Methylprednisolone on the day I was diagnosed and then 50mg prednisolone, 400mg co-trimoxazole, 50mg fluconazole and 30mg lansoprazole a day after that. Just over a week ago my consultant added 1g MMF (500mg twice a day) to the treatment plan. I'm having some side effects like moonface, insomnia, brain fog, anxiety and extremely low mood (GP prescribed me 50mg Sertraline). Not sure how much it's helping though. I'm a 22 year old female student and this has taken quite a toll on me.I'm happy there is a community like this one, with people who have had similar experiences. I recently tapered to 40mg Prednisolone and depending on my other test results my immunosuppressant may be increased/changed at my next appointment.
