I am looking to see if anyone has advice or experience with my current condition of my hands.
I was diagnosed with scleroderma in 2013. Over the first year or two my forearms became very tight. This has now eased somewhat, however my hands have become progressively tight with numerous bumps appearing.
It has now become quite unbearable. At my last consultation with a consultant he suspected the lumps may be an infection, however four months later there is no change.
Around a month ago I purchased a wax paraffin bath but I've not really found it to have any affect.
The skin on the back of my hands are so tight and I cannot close my hands at all. I've tried hand exercises and am waiting on occupational therapy.
Has anyone else had this and if so is it permanent or will it pass?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
