It has been nearly 5 months since I was diagnosed with Limited Scleroderma, I have a positive ANA and also positive anti-centromere antibodies. I have just had a 3 monthly visit with my rheumatologist and he said that although I have basically no skin involvement as yet the Scleroderma seems to be rapidly going internally!
My baseline tests were a bit confusing 5 months ago, my first echo showed P/H, my second showed probably normal. My rheumatologist seems in a bit of a panic now and now says that although my second echo report says probably normal, he now thinks that the numbers on the report are now not all that good. He has referred me to see a Cardiologist at the hospital and is going to personally speak to the consultant about things. He has also referred me to a Urologist as I have been on a short course of Prednisolone for about 12 days and have since developed kidney pain. Can anyone tell me whether my limited Scleroderma can turn into Diffuse or Sine Scleroderma?
I always thought that Limited Scleroderma was much slower at progressing.
I have had many more symptoms over the last few months but all is internal.
Anyway thanks for listening.
