Recommend close follow up with your doctor/ vein expert. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The biopsy seems to have ruled out lupus, but an immunofluresence bx is more specific. Mirvaso may help. ...Read more

Mild CRPS. Sympt- burning pain, swelling, redness, red dots on skin, sensitivity. Amitriptyline, physio- referred pain dr. Does mild CRPS worsen?
Can be challenging: However, most cases of CRPS encountered in my practice are far from mild. Have you had a diagnostic sympathetic block to confirm? Also, amitriptyline is rarely an effective drug in CRPS, and drugs such as Lyrica, Savella, (milnacipran) Cymbalta, work far better. Please confirm your diagnosis via second opinion. ...Read more
