I was diagnosed by my rheumatologist last year (I've had RA since age 26, I'm now 48). I'm having symptoms that seem troublesome to me but he is not very concerned. I went to my primary care physician yesterday and he says he doesn't think I have scleroderma at all! He's not an expert in the disease so I'm afraid to trust his judgement.
I know it's not normal to have painful heartburn even after taking a prescription, plus chewing and drinking antacids; can't swallow stuff, chest pain, can't take a deep breath, and other less terrifying symptoms. I don't know what to do at this point.
Has anyone else had problems with a doctor like this? What now?
