Unhappy Mystery??

I have a brother who recently developed a problem,with his feet and legs swelling, has red marks, and now the marks are appearing on his thighs, and on his buttocks.The pain gets worse when he's not moving, it's a burning pain sometimes. He's been to see a doc but they don't seem to know what's wrong with him. He had blood tests, and its not his blood sugar, because it turned out normal, then he saw a dermatologist who doesn't seem to know what it is either. Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Mystery??

Has he had any surgeries or injuries recently? When you describe burning, something like Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).

Does he have any problem with his lower back?

Re: Mystery??

What do the marks look like?

What other health issues does he have, and are his readings for liver function or kidney function tests elevated in any areas?
