My rheumatologist believes I have PG. I go to a dermatologist on Fri. Hope to find out for sure if this is what I have. I have done some research and it seems to be right. The pain is like fireworks in my leg.

    Hi @jeanie65 - Welcome to the community. I'm sorry to read about the problems you have, but it's also good to get your own research confirmed, something I also did about my genetic disorder. Please do have a look around the rest of the community; you can see other sections if you use the 'All groups' link on the right. Please let us all know how you get on with your dermatology referral.

    Hi @jeanie65 and welcome to the Community.  It is nice to meet you and thank you for sharing with us.  I'm sorry to hear about your health struggles as the pain doesn't sound nice at all.  I hope that your Dermatologist can throw more light on what is going on, but it sounds as though you have done good research in advance.  Good luck for your appointment!  It will be interesting to hear how you have got on anyway and I hope the pain eases soon.  If there is anything we can help/support you with then please just let us know.  All the best.  :smile:
