Can anyone help me?
Since February 2007 I have had red lumps appear on my body. They started around my middle and have just spread to my arms, legs and chest. I also have small spots under my skin and on my face.
I have seen 5 doctors and a nurse who are at a loss to know what it could be.
I have been refferred to a Skin Specialist who is also mystified. I have had a chest x ray and a full Ultra sound scan on my abdomen (all okay) He now wants to send me to a specialist to check my marrow! I have asked all the obvious questions and I feel I am getting nowhere.
This is having such an impact on my life. I am not a vain person but I hate waking up in the morning and looking at myself. My body looks awful! My husband is being really nice and tells me that I still look lovely!
In my darkest moments I think all sorts of things and I do not like researching too much.
Each time I have gone to the hospital I come away still none the wiser and I don't know how long I can keep the brave face for.
My mysterious rash is most of the time non itchy.
Can anyone help me?
