Hi Queenie...
Yep I totally understand the frustration...I can barely hold a pen, let alone sign something. I was at Costco the other day and paid by credit card..I felt like a moron trying to sign as I dropped the pen like 6 times. I am starting treatment on Monday so I'll let u know how it works...take care!...Chris

hi chris,
just thought I'd drop you line as I totally understand what you mean about the hands not working thing and how frustrating it is. i used to design my own greeting cards but now I am unable to hold a pen in my hand for more than well seconds as the pain is unreal and the pins and needles begin to kick in.but hey we will find ways around these things ha ha

Hi, I am sending a query for my mother who has lived with scleroderma for 40 years with mostly digestive system involvement. She is 81. For the last year she has felt like her body has been on fire. It has been getting progressively worse. Internal temp is always normal. She is miserable all the time from the heat, like a perpetual hot flash. Has anyone else heard of anything like this? thanks...

I thought I would also share my stories with all of you. since my sisters battle with scleroderma, i am much more aware of it, actually I never new it exsisted before this. and now I want to learn all I can, and do everything I can do to make more people aware. And since my sisters illness I have learned of five others within the area that have scleroderma. i will continue makeing people aware...
