    When I’m holding an object that puts pressure on the skin of my hands, like if I’m holding my phone or a spoon, after only a few seconds the skin hurts and stays red and dented. I’m assuming it means something is going on with the blood vessels (vascular inflammation? Fibrosis?) My rheumetologist doesn’t know and isn’t being helpful.

    Just wondering if anyone else has had these symptoms.

    Yes! My skin indents with light pressure.It’s widespread and throughout my body. I’ve been on AP for almost 6 months and I don’t notice skin pain any more. I do notice lines all over my body, but since I’m no longer feeling the prickling sensation of the tissue atrophying under my skin, it doesn’t bother me much.

    Symptoms started in 9/16 after 2 miscarriages, diagnosed with Lyme 4/17, Daughter born 6/17 (not breastfeeding). ANA negative by IFA as of 8/17, positive by ELISA with positive Anti-DSDNA antibodies the same month (false positive?). Symptoms that have come and gone include sicca and skin tightening and telangiactiasia. Currently dealing with migraines, arthralgia, morning stiffness, neuropathy, slight swelling, slightly elevated liver enzymes, and bubbly urine. Current protocol: minocycline 100 mg QID, azi
