Could anyone please tell me whether they had Raynauds before or after being diagnosed.? If it was after how long did Raynauds appear after your diagnosis?

Gareth does not have Raynaud's symptoms......yet. He's got esophageal and lung issues and positive blood work for scleroderma.
Take care, Everyone.

I developed Raynaud's 6 months prior to diagnosis and about 4 months after being diagnosed with mild carpal.

I have had Raynaud's for 9 years and I was just diagnosis in December with scleroderma.

All during this time rheumatologist said my fingers showed signs of CREST. I had a positive RNP and high ANA 1:1280 so was told I had MCTD.
18 months ago my new rheumatologist gave me the diagnosis of Lupus with an overlap of limited Scleroderma. I have the dsDNA which is specific for Lupus.

Thanks for replying to my post. One thing that I have noticed is that nearly all of you had Raynaud's before any symptoms of Sclero appeared. Mine is the opposite I have been diagnosed with Limited / Crest Sclero and Raynauds still hasn't appeared!!. And yet I have read to be diagnosed with Crest/Limited Sclero you apparently usually have had Raynauds for years/months before any symptoms of Sclero .
Thanks once again
