I have been diagnosed with morphea and just noticed a few of those red dots, the teleangiectasia stuff. Can morphea include those symptoms? I have never seen anything written about them together. Usually I see the tang things with systemic scleroderma (limited or diffused). Thanks, Sharon

Hi Sharon,
I'm sorry you've been diagnosed with morphea. I was diagnosed withmorphea 1 year ago, as well as telangiactasia, but I also have Raynaud's, GERD, shortness of breath, tight skin, etc. and my primary dr. suspects CREST. I'm seeing a sclero expert soon.
I am not an expert by any means, but have found in my researching that some people with morphea may have one or two overlapping symptoms (like telangiactasia or GERD), but are not considered systemic. It's always best to speak to your dr. with any concerns, though.

Take Care!
