Hopefully things should settle down assuming it is HSP.Do consult your Doc, in any case.
With my best wishes.
Thank you so much for your response. I looked into the HSP and though it appears rare in adults ... I do think that this sounds a bit like what's going on based on the symptoms mentioned and my history with the last couple of this sounds a lot like what could be happening.
Earlier tonight I was doubled over in intense flank pain and was hurting severely in my abdomen, but I have noticed the pain comes in waves so I rode it out. I have been tempted to go to the ER a couple of times because the pain has become quite intense, but as it is the weekend and the ER's are horrible on weekends I keep telling myself "this to shall pass and just wait until Monday to call my PCP." And, at least, I have not developed any new bruises yet, and my thigh is already feeling a bit better. Now, after reading a bit more on HSP I am not sure if I should try to see my PCP, my Rheumatologist, or my Urologist. I am still waiting to get in as a new patient with the Cardiologist. Crap, who knows? Maybe I should seek a Dermatologist also. Urg!
Henoch Schonlein purpura.Spelling error regretted.
This could be a variant Henoch-Schbnlein Purpura (HSP). Your abdominal pain with ecchymosis makes me think of this.
Henoch-Schbnlein Purpura (HSP) is a common, usually self-limited, vasculitis affecting children and young adults. But it can occur in adults.
Do consult your Doc.
