:confused:I have had a lump on the inside crease of my elbow, which has now started to swell including the areas of my forearm and hand. also noticed that there is swelling in my under arm and occasionally my left clavicle area. x-rays, ct scan, mri all come back normal. WBC is low, while mpv and rdw are high on my blood work. The doctors are at stand still as they don't know where to go from here. Recently a itchy red rash has developed on the skin above the lump. My mamo came back ok. Any input on a similar situation. The doctors can see and feel the lump and swelling but can not pin point it on any test?????????????

  • no bites, no lyme. Lump started one yr. ago. swelling 3 mths, rash 2 wks.......Sounds like common symptoms of lupus.......read the extensive list of symptoms of lupus and see if anything else is a match. Try not to worry however, I think everyone can look at the symptom list and have any number of them. Just something to check out anyway! Good luck!
