:confused: Hi all. Does anyone know what causes brief itchy rashes (always on my chest), that are appear as small pathes. They are a dark pink color, and they look like prickley heat. I know when it happens, because it itches, and when I look, the rash is there. The rash only lasts less than an hour, and then it goes away. I used to get them periodically, but now I get them every day. (Usually in the mornings, or evenings.) My doctor does not believe me. :eek: He never saw them, because they never seem to appear when I have my appointments. I also feel sick every day, and I have undiagnosed muscle pain in my legs when I walk. If I can find an answer to the rashes, it might lead to a diagnosis of my other symptoms. Could this be a systemic disease? Does anyone know what tests are needed? Thank you, everyone! We all have to help each other, here. With so many posts asking for help, it makes me scared that the doctors do not know what thay are doing!

  • Ask him to check your calcium and potassium. They can both cause pain when walking. You should also look to see if you have any kind of swelling. The smallest amounts of water in the legs can cause alot of pain. If you are on any kind of medication this could be a cause as well. Good luck...
