I had rashes on my calves, neck, and upper arms for about one month but they started to go away. They looked like hives. It was very itchy at night time. Now I still have some around my ankles but the other rashes are gone. The rashes around my ankles are still itchy at night time. I had a low grade fever (37.9 c) about 2 weeks ago but it went away over night.
Just wanted to add that my rashes seem to reoccur every summer when it is humid and hot (I live in Hong Kong). So I did not pay too much attention to it.
I sometimes would have a bit of headache due to my neck problem. There is one part of the back of neck, the bone (disc?) seems to be sticking out a bit and it is very sore sometimes.
I had my health check last year and all the numbers came out normal. I am generally a quite healthy person for my age. I do yoga once a week to help with my neck problem.
This morning when I woke, the pain is not there but the whole body (especially my finger and toes) is quite stiff.
What is polymyalgia rheumatica?
So you think it something related to my immune system? Would blood checking be the first step to proceed in order to find out more of my problem?
Thank you, Dr Chip.
