Lesley’s Story

I was diagnosed with UP in 1987 and I am now 59. The only symptoms then were an ugly rash on my body and legs which got worse in the sun and heat. In October I had a sudden collapse, unconscious for over 3 hours, flushing, diarrhoea and vomiting. The hospital consultant and GP think it was a gastric bug. Having read all the members stories and information I think it was all linked to UP which I had really forgotten about as I had not had any other symptoms. I now want to have some more tests.
