Hi,

I attended an Introduction to Scleroderma Workshop at the Rheumatology Hospital Bath a couple of weeks ago which was run by Sue Brown. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet other Scleroderma sufferers and to discuss some of the problems we have been experiencing and exchange good ideas. I can't wait for Part 2 in November.

At the meeting stomach problems and probiotic tablets were discussed. At the end of the Workshop I purchased a bottle of probiotic tablets. After two weeks I have no more bloating and I feel so very very much better.

My hands and feet are incredibly swollen at the moment but just removing one symptom means the others are somehow easier to deal with.

I wanted to say a VERY BIG THANK YOU to everyone at the Workshop for putting me onto a simple but effective solution - I want to shout it from the roof tops.

My best wishes to everyone.

Jane

For information we have a section on probiotics. Please remember to consult your doctor before trying any supplements etc.

HI, Jane

Just wanted to let you know that my sister who is suffering from
diffuse scleroderma also has been introduced to some probiotics and I know she has said they have helped her feel better, but as others have said I guess you would have to find out which kind would be right for you.

Take Care, :bye:
