"Erythromelalgia may be an early sign of polycythaemia or thrombocythaemia, where symptoms may precede diagnosis of the myeloproliferative disorder by 2.5 years. Dramatic relief with aspirin is typical of this type and can be used as an aid to diagnosis."
This is the interesting part for me. Eg: Today I took a baby aspirin. Few hours later my EM is not bad at all. I can stand on carpet, etc without flaring...
Does anyone else have positive effects with aspirin? How long have they had EM? Do they have a MPN?
Yes- I have positive effects with aspirin Ocker. I started taking aspirin from the start . Ill send you some stuff on aspirin - theoretically makes sense and OTC. Dosage is up to 350mg day - thats what most research tends to recommend.
What type of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) do you have? Have you been diagnosed?
Have you tried out antihistamines - another good rationale. EM - biopsy- heat intolerance- chronic urticaria .
I don’t have an MPN as yet - diagnosed about Aug last year. Last blood tests were within normal ranges.
I’m concerned about my condition moving to a MPN and thus the curiosity as to others here that respond to Aspirin and if it developed to a diagnosed MPN… Doc says that if you respond to aspirin that it does point to an MPN but could take some time to develop…
