I have MCTD also, I can really relate to how people feel. I’m 41 years old and I feel like my life is over. I have pain constantly in my hands, my fingers are swollen that when I told my doctor he said that is from me doing Data Entry. I wanted so bad to tell him that he has not walked a day in my shoes. My legs are swollen from my toes up to my knees….What should I do? The doctor that I have is not a Rhemy.
