Hi guys, not posted for a while.
I could do with some support..... A general update since I last posted is this: Scleroderma stable, but other developments.
I have had punctual plugs put in my eyes - very dry, plus a big toes fusion due to osteoarthritis. I have been told I am also gastric parietal cell antibody positive (pernicious anemia) so along with this I am also ANA positive, ACA positive, AMA positive, antimicrosomal positive and have low C4 (Confusing, thought C4 was associated with lupus)
Due to the gastric parietal antibody, and being a vegan (no B12 in diet) I had further blood tests, my B12 and folate are very elevated, and as I take 80mgs omeprazole for reflux (which helps block absorption of B12) I am very confused :emoticon-dont-know:
Furthermore, on return from work tonight, my ankles were massive! I have also noticed that as I have caught the sun(!!) a little, I have lots of small white dots of hypo pigmentation everywhere.
