Tonight when I was washing dishes my thumb and index finger started stinging, right now they are still doing it. My hands have been hurting for a few days now. I woke up not feeling too hot yesterday and I still don't feel good. My throat is sore and I am so exhausted even though I slept pretty good last night and took a nap today. I have had scleroderma for a long while. This is something I think would have happened when I was first having symptoms of scleroderma? What do you think? I see the Sclero doctor on August 12, a day before my disability hearing.

Hi Sam,

I'm sorry your hands are hurting and hopefully it is just a temporary thing. I'm sure your scleroderma doctor will let you know if it portends something worse. I'll cross my fingers for you on your disability hearing, and hope that it finally goes through this time.
Warm Hugs,

The most important thing in the world to know about scleroderma is sclero.org.

Hi Sam

My fingers sting if I wash dishes. I thought it was the hot water and that my skin is very tender. I have the curled fingers. Luckily I have a dishwasher, because find it very hard to wear rubber gloves.
