For about 2 and a half weeks my wife wich is 27 years old has had swollen anles that were red but now turned black and blue,pain in her knees,elbows and wrists.She has been sent for almost every blood test under the sun.Our family doctor keeps just giving her different scripts everything from water pills to naproxan to tylenol 3.Sent her for a echo to make sure that fluid wasnt backing up into her heart.Sent her for a dopplar on her legs to check blood flow.now wants to send her to a kindney doctor he said that he really doesnt know what it could be.She hasnt really been able to stand on her feet even long enough to go to the bathroom.I would think that the doctor would admit her to find out already. Any ideas?

  • does she have any patches in her skin anywhere in her body? is there any abnormal bleeding? is it the first time for her to have that? was there any previous trauma in these joints? does the pain radiates to any other place in her body?
