Its odd you bring up petechiae as I have liver disease and the liver forum I go to has a lot of people who get petechiae and lots of information about
the connection between liver and kidney disease. Spironolactone is often prescribed in conjunction with Lasix for liver disease and there are many people on liver forums that have extensive experience with it, petechiae and the side effects. Do you have liver disease that you know of? Have you seen a hepatologist to be evaluated ever? Elevated ANA and brain fog and autoimmune type problems can occur in conjunction with these diseases. I take plaquenil, but in my case, I'm hoping my ai problems might get better with treatment of other conditions. I'm assuming you've been tested for all the normal stuff, hepatitis, lyme disease, TB and all the rest. You might want to double check with your doc.
Healingwell has a great liver forum and I'm sure there are plenty of people there that might be able to help. Also, IMKindly runs a great liver failure support forum at
Then select Liver Failure Support Forum. There are great informational posts and IMKindly just has so much info. Its weird to register there, you have to register then add the Liver Failure Support forum to your forum list--subscribe to it.
Take care and I hope you get better. It's awful finding out all this stuff wrong. I hope you feel better soon. Take care, Marji
