Hope someone can relate/help. My son is 15 and has a range of symptoms that our doctor can not seem diagnose. He is tall and thin. His hands are always cold and have a mottled puprle hue. He says they do not hurt. His face is often flushed. He has periods of fatigue and dizziness (often after just eating). He has a chronic cough/asthma symptoms. Recently, he has had goosebumps that are uneven. They are on his arms and appear in random globs or strings with no bumps between patches. They only last a few seconds to a minute. I am very concerned.....any ideas?

I am very concerned.....any ideas?I also have circulation issues in my hands, which make them cold and purple-ish. I'm tall and thin. The other issues may be unrelated, unless you never ruled out Marfan's syndrome. Goosebumps in an uneven or missing pattern sounds neurological. I would first rule out Marfan's.Good luck:)
