I went to see a new Rheumatologist today and still do not have a definitive answer.
Here is what I know. I have a positive ANA with a 1:2560 titer with centromere pattern, reflux disease, Raynaud's disease, mitral valve prolapse, low vit D and low blood pressure, dry eyes, some questionable red spots on my face mostly on or around my lips and some scattered brown spots on my face. I live in the midwest.
All my symptoms have developed over the last 5 years or so except the Raynaud's which has been a bit longer. Two Doctors, two opinions. One says limited scleroderma, the other says no, just Raynaud's. Both have told me that scleroderma is much more common that most people think and in my case there is no treatment needed except for the reflux which I take pantoprazole.
I don't want to be diagnosed with some thing I don't have, but don't want to be mis-diagnosed either and at this point don't know what to do or who to believe. Everything I've read about scleroderma has me more concerned than either of the doctors seem to be. Is it possible to have a positive ANA 1:2560 centromere pattern and not have scleroderma and it just be Raynaud's? Am I over reacting and should I just not worry?
