DS (18) is doing well behaviorally, academically, emotionally, etc. He's developed a physical symptom, however, that we're having trouble identifying. We're actually planning to make a doctor's appointment in the morning, but wondered in the meantime if any of you have come across a similar issue? DS's arms and trunk have taken on a pinkish tone, and when you press down, you get the white spots where your fingertips had applied pressure, and they last a few seconds before the pinkish tone returns. Interestingly enough, while his arms, stomach and back all display the same reaction, there's no pink tone or atypical response to pressure on his legs. It looks like inflammation/edema to me, but he's not feeling unwell overall, no fever, he's still taking omegas and quercitin (anti-inflammatory) regularly, and he regularly eats an anti-inflammatory diet, as well (in fact, we just had a chicken curry last night). He's not recently been exposed to any new foods, soaps or laundry detergents, either. Any similar experiences? Any ideas? Thanks!
