I have had Lupus since 1985 and I am 42yrs old and just about a year and a half ago,i woke with redish,spotted,hugely swollen and so painful feet and ankles. Its got so bad,my skin split and blistered a little. My family and doctors were shocked,but not sure why and why comes on so fast. It's happened 4 times now and half the time,its the left side,others it's both. My tests for kidney and heart,etc are norm(havent always been,but ok now),but I read this is a symptom and can be with the heart and doesn't always show on tests at first. I do not have a clot,so far as they see,either. It is not Arthritis,either. I have pictures that are crazy-big. Anyone have this or info?
