I was hoping that someone could give me his/her experience with vasculitis. I read about it on the lupus foundation website, but I'm still somewhat confused.

Vasculitis is inflammation of blood vessels (small, medium & large).

I have a lot of GI problems and my rhuemy thinks it could be vasculitis either inside or outside of my intestines. Are you having any particular problems that points to vasculitis? Feel free to ask questions. Take care

Hi Stacie-

I was a little concerned b/c I am noticing some discoloration on my fingers and legs. If I press on the area, it feels a little sore. I read that there was a connection between vasculitis and Anti ro/lo antibodies, and I tested postive for both.
