Scleroderma Case Studies
Until five years ago I had never heard of Scleroderma and even Raynaud's was a phenomenon that I had read about but just thought my cold hands and feet were a normal reaction to the cold! Then, suffering from what I thought might be arthritis in my thumbs (my Gran had had rheumatoid arthritis) I went to the doctor. Well, the consultant said don't worry you have the less serious form of scleroderma - called CREST and that was it! No treatment, tests, just an annual check up and that with an assistant who thought there was nothing wrong! But also that year - I was diagnosed with breast cancer which needless to say wiped everything else from my mind.
