Unexplained bruising and left hip pain
I am a 27y/o female and for the last year or so I had been suffering from sciatic pains more on my left side. When it first started I used to get shooting pain starting at my lower back, through my buttock and down to my foot. I also had some numbness and tingling. About 4-5 months ago my sciatic pain has pretty much stopped, but now my left hip has been bothering. It wasn't bad at first, but now there are times where I can hardly walk. I also have noticed that I have been having unexplained bruising only on my lower extremities without any trauma to them whatsoever. They don't even hurt at all. Over the course of 3 months I have been checking my legs daily for new bruises and have been bruising more and more frequently. I am also extremely fatigued for no reason and have a constant headache that wont go away. I used to work out at the gym everyday and have energy to spare, but now I can barely bring myself to get out of bed. I noticed I started getting these bruises and hip pain after I had an episode of kidney stones almost 5 months ago. I also have this skin rash on my legs only as well. I noticed that all my symptoms are only on my legs. I'm not sure what it could be. I went to a Doctor yesterday and they kept asking me about a family history of lupus. I had a cbc done today that was normal. Platlets were 333, rbc 4.46 hgb/hct 12.8/39, wbc 7.7. I also had an x ray of my left hip and pelvis that showed a partial sacralization. I don't have medical insurance and just these 2 tests alone costed me a pretty penny. Do my symptoms even sound consistent with lupus? Is there a more accurate test that can be done to determine whether or not I even have it? Is it possible to have a completely normal cbc with lupus? Also could my partial sacralization be causing my bruising and rash?
