Hi all..
I have been sick for about 3 months now.. the first few doctors diagnosed me with RMSF and Erlichiosis and I had a biopsy done on my rash and it came back as early Leukocytoclastic Vasculitis. Turns out its not infectious, rather an auto immune disease and the Vasculitis is probably secondary b/c my ANCA test came back clear. My ANA came back with a low positive, lupus negative, SSB + but SSA -, ESR somewhat elevated.. was in high 50's, went back down to low 40's, back up to 87 and then back down to 57... So here I am three months later, rash still active but much less than before (probably due to Prednisone) and about to start Plaqenil (spelling?) and have decreased my steroid dosage (swelling of joints returning while decreasing dosage). For now, I am diagnosed with undifferentied connective tissue dissease. Anyone familiar with UCTD?
