I have big purple dots on my left arm and wonder what that…

Customer Question
I have big purple...

I have big purple dots on my left arm and wonder what that mean. I have had pseudo gout on that arm last year and it was quite painful. I am 81years old and also having problem with my bowels. I seem not to be able to hold it in. It goes without my knowledge. My doctor is looking for a colorectal surgeon but that may take up to a year. This condition causes me to have bladder infection often. What can I do?

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

Im taking care of my husband who has Dimentia. I am very tired and close to a depression. But I vow that I will take care of him as long as I can.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Many things that I think is related to my situation. Example: Sore groins on one side,sore on my left breast. (going for mamogram at the end of the month) I have had bladder suspension but it did'nt work, so I wear a ring now and it smell very bad in there.

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.
