Hey everyone ! I'm 19 and a man and I am just wondering the risk of me developing Scleroderma and if it is genetic.
My mother has quite severe Scleroderma. It was developing just before I was born but improved during pregnancy (Due to the extra pint of blood). She also has Raynaud's as an overlap which developed when she was younger.
I have showed no symptoms that have cause for alarm but am not sure of all of the symptoms that can be shown, my only longstanding condition is IBS and I have no Raynaud's. There is no known history of scleroderma in the family but some of rheumatoid arthritis.
Do I have a high risk of developing this? What should I look out for?
