I saw my scleroderma doctor yesterday, it was a good appointment, things are much better than he thought. After all the tests he prescribed amitriptyline to help with muscle pain at night that was waking me from my sleep.
He did say my lungs are involved but were doing ok. He did measurements of my heart through sonogram and said everything measures good and my heart was doing ok.
He is going to do another pulmonary function test in a year but that my scleroderma was progressing slowly and he did not want to do any harsh treatments at this time like chemo or a stem cell transplant as that can be harder on the body than scleroderma can.
He did not get to see the MRI but said that could change things real fast. I had that after my appointment so he said he would call me in about 5 days to let me know about that.
So I am pleased with my appointment.
