My 24 year old daughter has been ill for 17 months now. She has heart arythmia, tachycardia, pain and weakness in back and outer thighs and bumps under the skin. Some of the bumps just are there, painless and non growing but 4 times over the last year some have become abscesses with staph. Once she needed an 8 day hospital stay for these. She was in hospital 3 days before that unable to stand or walk. She has a red scaly rash on her elbows that she has had since she was 15. The leg and back pain has been there for years too. She was diagnosed with POTS until she started falling down and developing abscesses. I found a paper on polymyositis described heart problems associated with the condition as well as calcium deposits (lumps) under the skin. During the hospitalization where she couldn't walk the CPK level was 600. This was atributed to damage from all the falling she does. Does this sound like anyone elses experience? Does anyone get these bumps under the skin and do some of them turn into abscesses?
