For the past year every few months I have had petichaie on my hands and feet mostly. bit also on my wrist where my watch is. It appears on my hands and fingers whenever I grasp anything firmly. If I squeeze my fingers to make a fist I will get the petichiae where my fingers touch my palms. If I lean back on my hands while sitting on the ground again, petichiae. It is really noticable like and looks like I been giving myself hickies. My doctor sent me for blood tests last year to check for a blood disorder, but everything seemed fine. Any thoughts? I do and have suffered from migraines and fatigue, which is probably not related.

  • HiI am afraid I can't offer any diagnosis - only I suffer from the same things - migraines, fatigue and petichiae on my forearms and wrists. The petichiae seems worst when I am in a long spell of having migraines - or 'threat' of migraines.I wish someone could help!

  • Hello, Have you been tested for Lyme & co infections? Your statement abt monthly outbreaks, the Lyme bacteria goes through cycles and symptoms can wax and wane. Migraines and deep fatigue are also symptoms. I am not sure if its babieosis or borriellia that does the petichiae. Do get tested and do some searches. Best wishes~~Dee
