So I saw the rheumatologist today about my positive sclero Ana. From what the doc says, I don't have scleroderma and he is pretty positive of it. He said my positive Ana does not mean I actually have scleroderma. He said I might have a 5% chance of ever developing it.
While this is a major relief, I am just worried he didn't perform all the tests necessary to diagnose. All he did was bend my joints and see my flexibility and also take a look at my skin and hear my breath through a stethescope. He did not do the nailfold or other tests I've heard of.
I will definitely be getting a 2nd opinion but am still a bit worried. My main symptoms are all digestive related that have been going on for about a year.
Does anyone have any thoughts if I should still be worried? Thank you again and take care.
