For a while now one of my hands will swell in places and itch terribly. Then, the next day, it will be left with purple splotches. It looks terrible. I have to take benedryl a couple times during the first day of the itching and swelling. Has anyone else had these effects? I thought it might be the effects of the lyrica I take, but I don't know for sure.
My doctor has never really seen it. The next time it occurs, I will try to get an appointment that same day, but you know how that goes. It usually takes a couple days to get in to see him and the effects are gone by then.
I am at witt's end with this. Looking forward to comments from my friends here.
