Could someone tell mec what Vasculitis is? I have Lupus and my dr just told me I have that as well.

Vasculitis is an inflammation of your blood vessels.

Hi, in my case the vasculitis causes my blood vessels to leak so I get these purple/red blotches on my legs. The sun makes it much worse. I also hemorrhage in my abdominal wall. It’s not very pretty to look at but it can be a part of lupus.

Thank you for info. This is all still new to me. It seems everytime I go to the doctor it’s always something

Why does he think you have it?

Yes, I have to start iv medrol for three days this week, then next month when I go back to see hi I start Cytoxan. There so much going on I dont know where to begin. Its getting harder and harder to get around due to pain and fatigue.
