Customer Question

I have been having over last 15 years intense pain in my hand and fingers and then it appears as a bruise and fades away. This happens over a dozen times per year. This last year the area is in larger blood vessels. Again a burning or intense pain which I usually apply preasure to and then it bursts and larger bruising occurs. I do not have high blood preasure but I am on 1/2 dos baby aspirin because I had a stroke 3 years ago. should I worry
JA: It's hard to know for sure. The Doctor will figure it out.
Customer: Last doctor I discussed this with a year ago seemed to think it was not important...Concerned because I got the size of a dime lump above my inner ankle that felt like it was on fire; I guessed it was like the others and within a few minutes the pain went away and today there is a large bruised area about 2 inches by 1 inch...
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I have 100% free and clear carotid arteries with testing done by a heart specialist and I had stage 1a lung cancer and surgery in 2012

You could have autoimmune vasculitis. You should see a rheumatologist to have exam, a blood test, and a biopsy.
