Hi everyone. I am awaiting my antibodies blood work results next week. In the meantime I just fought an upper respiratory virus for about a month. I woke up one day with strange feelings in both hands, they felt fuzzy and just weird. The strange feeling migrated to my toes about a week later. I can't call it numbness or tingling just an odd sensation. My fingernails hurt sometimes and my hands are little crampy. The strange sensory feeling is also affecting my forearms. The newest symptom is a feeling as though I am stepping on a tennis ball on the arch of one foot however there is nothing there when I touch it.
A week ago I developed Cold Urticaria. I live in Colorado and removed some ice briefly no more than 15 seconds, came into the house and my hand was swollen, red and itchy. My next encounter with snow left me with two large welts on my wrist. My GP thinks I might have Sclero.
The weird thing is I get an intermittent rash on my face as well and occasional chills. All of my blood work has come back normal as far as blood counts, thyroid and blood sugar. My ESR result was normal and I am awaiting as I said earlier the ANA and other things she ordered. I really wanted to think that this virus just drove me into the ground and this is my body's way of reacting. But if anyone can relate to this can you please give me some insight? I can't lie and say that this doesn't scare me. Trying to stay calm but desperately looking for answers.
