My daughter has recently been getting a lot of unexplained bruises on her legs, a couple nose bleeds, fatigue and got her period after 2 weeks--NEVER been early before. All of this happened in a week and to me spells something isn't quite right. We went to the dr. and they kind of poo-poo'd it. My biggest concern is that she has been on Remicade for 2 years. I asked them to test her blood as she is scheduled for oral surgery Monday and was too nervous there might be something going on. One of the tests came back abnormal for clotting, but they aren't that concerned. Her CBC looked good, though. Of course, her regular dr. is out so we saw someone else. The oral surgeon (whom I contacted) took it a little more seriously and is requiring her to have the surgery in the hospital IF he feels she is even going to be able to have it done.
It just seems it is one thing after another. She has had inflammation (or at least that is what they have blamed the pain on) in her back, toe, knees, hips, and now her ribs! Her UC symptoms have been pretty good with the exception of a mild flare in March.
