Customer Question
I have been treated for...
I have been treated for various problems over the last few years including blood in urine (no causes found) severe joint pains especially the knees (knee tidy up op done - still too young for a full replacement) abdominal pian (appendix removed to be on the safe side) spots predimantly on arms (had these for about 20 years but still fascinates some Doctors) severe back pain - sporadic and not everyday central upper spine to under right shoulder blade (already had gall bladder removed 23 yrs ago) plus asthma but now may be post nasal drip. Is there any way these could all be linked as I seem to end up with a different Doctor each time I go.

Hi

Welcome to just answer...

Considering that you have involvment of your lungs, abdomen, kidneys, skin and joints I would consider the possibility of Chrug Strauss Syndrome to be a possibility in your case...

It is a small vessel vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels) which can present in a similar manner that you described your symptoms... Asthma is a very improtant feature of this syndrome so is the pain that yoou mentioned...

A rheumatologist would be the best person to help you with this problem covering all aspects of your disease....

I hope this helps you...

Thank you...

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
