Back in April 08 I got diagnosed with ITP (low platelets). I started IV steriods for three days and 100mg taper. I got three more 75mg prednisone tapers in 2 years plus another hospital stay with steroids and ivig. Well now my body is a mess- my legs hurt so bad I can barely climb the stairs or get up from a seat. Before all this happened, they did see i had a few lesions on my MRI but three neuros said it wouldnt cause this pain. One rheumy said prednisone myopothy andother said he thinks its Lupus (mottled skin coloring, ITP, lesions, pain etc). My CRP and SED rate are elevated.
I am starting physical therapy soon- they gave me NO pain meds, no thing. I am depressed because of this. Im 31 and hate my life.
