Scleroderma

Posted by @bamarn, Oct 8, 2011

Does anyone have to live with Scleroderma ? I was DX 13 years ago with . Its such an aggravating disease to live with. I am the only one in my family on both sides that has it. I dont think people realize how you may not look like your in pain and you really are. I seem to hide it well. I hate the looks I get when people see my fingers or the dark spots on my arm.

Hi, yes I was dx first with lupus first then changed the dx to scleorderma, then changed it again to uctd with features of scleroderma, lupus and now they dx me with a progressive muscle disease and neuropathy, not to mention the microscopic colitis and my hyporthyoid. So I know just what you are talking about. Do you have Raynauds also. Mine gets pretty bad when it starts to get cold, or I am stressed. Right now not bad, but I quit work and not having the stress from that has helped the raynauds attacks. Do you have anyother autioammune diseases? What do they have you on for a theatment?
Nice to meet you,
Susie
