Anyone else have these while flaring? I just got a bunch of them all over my body (don't worry, I've already been to the E.R. about it), and read that some people with Crohn's get them.

They took my blood work and my SED rate and CRP levels are high and my iron is slightly low. My platelets are fine. They clot at a normal rate and the numbers are right where they're supposed to be. The doc was just confused because I don't really have a reason to be having the petechiae.
However, my Crohn's diagnosis was retracted earlier by my new GI...and I haven't been treated for it for the past several months.
Maybe this will kick his butt into actually diagnosing me again so I can get some relief.

I get it in my eyes sometimes from straining. Plus I do that I am in so much pain I cannot breath thing, and it happens then.
