tangelo I was told you might be able to help me. I am having horrible problems and am searching for a dr. that deals with sclerodoma or other rare autoimmune diseases here in colorado. I am getting sicker and sicker with stomach esophogus bladder leg pain fluid on the knees raynouds the list goes on and on and I am only 40 years old. if you think you could help me I could give you more details about my health but 2 doctors have brought up the crest syndrome or diffuse systemic sclerosis I am at a loss in and out of the hospital I hurt so bad and cannot hold down food. I am really getting scared and I can't find help. if you could point me in the right direction I would be so greatful. I am even willing to travel I hear some of the rare disease clinics or hospital may help but I am not sure where to turn to. I also have a little sister (32) who is going through almost the exact same thing. with both have ptosis of the eyes and think that may have something to do with it. well I mad a real long story short and if you feel like writing me I sure would appreciate any help you could give me. Thankyou so much Ginny take care and thankyou again

I'm so sorry you are having so many problems. You definitely need to find a good doctor to help you out and get you stabilized. Tangelo has really kept close with her doctors and has some good ones, so she'll be of great assistance. I know she uses one of the following centers so she'll be able to provide personal experience. Here are some centers I found in Colorado that are listed under Scleroderma Clinical Trail Consortium.

Also here is a directory of Rheumatologists in Colorado. Just click on the city that you are in or closet to.

Please keep us up on how you are doing. I hope you find a wonderful doctor soon.

Big Hugs,
