I am 49 years old. Had a hemicolectomy 18 months ago. About 4 months after surgery, got livedo reticularis on both my legs. I also had my back go out about the same time so I was taking half a flexeril (5mg) every morning and another 5 mg every night for about a year. I have tested low positive for autoimmune (which I didn't have before the surgery). I am not sure if the livedo is because of the muscle relaxer, or because of the surgery, or it is just a coincidence that I now have a low positive ANA. I have stopped taking the muscle relaxer except for on really bad days, but the livedo hasn't got any better. Assuming the damage is permanent because I have now had it a year. Has anyone tried services at a skin and vein center to help?
my daughter has livedo reticularis and she hates it usually gets it when cold but rarely. she doesn't wear things that will show the blotches which sucks takes the pill for focusing and I knew this pill causes that what else can.. but now she refuses to take the pill hoping the blotches will fade but trying to look for other pills that help better with adhd and don't have bad affects like this!
