HSP-Henoch Schonlein Purpura condition-anyone heard of it?
My 6-year old was just diagnosed with this condtion after she had bad stomach pains, and 2 days later, developed red bruise-like marks all over her legs. It has now spread to her arms, and her hand and knees have been swollen on seperate days. Every night before bed, she cannot walk on her legs and I have to carry her to bed. I've found limited info on the internet about this, and her doctor said it's not uncommon, but very rare and should go away within 4-6 weeks. I would just like to talk with another parent that has had to suffer through this....it's agonizing watching my little girl cry every night becasue she can't stand on her legs (otherwise, she is fine though...thank goodness). Also, if you know of a more appropriate board to post this on, I would truly appreciate it. Thanks!
