I told him that I had Scleroderma and I needed some more meds, he said " what is this you are my fifth Scleroderma patient this year that I have seen. Since last year I had only read about Scleroderma.
I was quite surprised that he had come across a few Scleroderma patients. I just thought I would share this information with everyone.
Have a good day

I have always been meaning to ask you.....what is your picture?
Take care, Everyone.

I'm always shocked when I talk to "normal' people and they know what scleroderma is.

I also have those kinds of doctors and feel so fortunate. The rheumatologist I've had since she first got into practice in 1991 does research 1/2 of the week and sees patients the other 1/2. My "other" rheumatologist is so savvy, I'm in awe of his knowlege/intellignece. It's as though he can't learn enough. To date, there isn't anything he HASN'T been able to answer for me. As a matter of fact, while my hubby's ex-wife was in a coma, he took the time to explain her condition (TTP) to us. Because of all of the information he was feeding us, I was on "brain overload" and couldn't absorb it all!
