2 1/2 years ago I woke up one morning and could not get out of the bed, the pain was awful, in all my joints muscles and I was so scared. I finally rolled out of bed, grabbed furniture to stand and staggered to the bathroom where I screamed while trying to sit on the toilet. That day I noticed a dime shaped water blister about 4 in. above that big ankle bone on the left side of my leg. Aside from having had back surgery, and two herniated discs and carpal tunner (that month the c.p.) my health had been normal. I have been to so many doctors diagnosed with fibromyalgia,AS, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. and the blisters starting coming very slowly at first then more rapidly, in the last three months, I have had about 10 or 11 appear, first as a red mark, then tiny blisters, then they joing together, round, long, it doesn't matter. Before I have them my legs, calves and feet especially hurt tremendously even with pain medication. My lastest specialist, a dermatologist, has gotten me an appt in Janurary but I might be worked in before then. These blisters takes months to heals, leave indentation in my skin, and terrible scare. I feel in my gut these blisters are the symptom that is the key to this disease. Can anyone help.
