First off let me say, this is not for me, its for a friend that cant get to a computer.
she came to work one night and worked her 12 hour shift. By morning her right ankle was swollen like she sprained it but she hadn't. 12hours after that the other ankle started swelling.
the next day she could barely walk so i took her to the ER. The doctor did x-rays because he just thought she sprained it. she told him she sit for work and she'd know if she did. 3 days later she woke up to what looks like a cross between, bruising/lesions and almost like a blister. all over her body, mostly on her legs
She went back to the ER. The doctors first tried tell her it was rheumatoid arthritis. she prescribed her dilaudid and sent her home. she made an appt with her doctor. shes been to see him 3 times now and still no diagnosis. she can barely walk, she cant work and is in a lot of pain
these are pics of her right leg (the ankle that swollen first)2 days after it showed up. what can it be??????????????????
