I sometimes feel like i'm the only one who suffers with this, and i have no one to compare notes with. I'm about 4 or 5 years into this, and would really appreciate knowing if there is anyone who has had it this long - and/or how they have conquered it.

Mine doesn't ever go completely away. The doctor says because there was an injury in that part of my leg is also affecting blood flow. Is there support out there to help determine what direction I need to go with this ? Thanks

  • I have just been diagnosed, but I've had it for at least a year and maybe longer. I thought it was bruises for a few months and then realized that they weren't healing and that I wasn't doing anything to consistently cause bruises in those areas anyway. I finally went to a dermatologist. I'm taking potassium iodide, but it doesn't seem to be doing much of anything, except making me feel unwell. I've been taking it for two weeks.

  • I also have just been diagnosed wth EN. I have looked @ many sites on this condition & they all say the same, that it goes away after about 6 weeks. I've had mine for 6 months or longer. I am about 2 begin taking potassium iodide as well. The sideeffects seem awful. R u having 2 drink urs?:eek:
