Hello everyone. I am happy to have found this forum as being diagnosed with Scleroderma is very confusing.
I have a few questions to ask and I hope you don't mind.
I was recently diagnosed with Lymphocytic Colitis and my doctor wanted me to be tested for a possible autoimmune disease. My blood work results: Titer , 1:320. Pattern is speckled and ANA screen is positive. My Scleroderma ABS (SCL-70) is 2.8 pos H.... normal range is <1.0. All other blood work was normal.
Besides my digestive issues, I am also having inflammation in my lungs.
My newest symptom is sore foot/ankle and burning sensation in my foot as well, no sores. Is that from Scleroderma?
My doctors, and I have many, do not tell me much. I'm assuming I have systemic but no one has confirmed this. Is there more testing that I should be having done?
Has anyone noticed that a gluten free diet helps with symptoms?
Thank you in advance for reading this.
