I am a 25 year old female waiting on the results from my autoimmune blood work taken yesterday.
When I was 8/9 I developed a rash. I was seen by my primary who said it was spider veins and that was that. Over the years I've had multiple health problems. Lots of chronic pelvic and stomach pain undiagnosed, acid reflux, IBS, moving food too quickly through my digestive tract, unexplained hip pain. Looking through my different comp panels I've also noticed that my Alk PHO levels have risen the highest it got to was 189 and I'm currently at 179. Also my a/g ratio has been consistently low or at the very lowest of " normal" I have a lot of unexplained medical issues.
When I went to the dermatologist he called in 3 other doctors to evaluate my rash and they fear I have the T in CREST. I'm very scared and the pictures I look at don't look like this, so I'm looking for answers. The rash is only on my chest and down my arms and on both hands, it is not raised and does not itch. Does anyone have any ideas or have seen CREST portray itself in this way?
I have a new 2 month old daughter and the thought of having to leave her early is really killing me.
