Hello Chockers

Welcome to the forum, as the first new member to post you also get a gold star!

Have a browse around site, this is a safe place to research about scleroderma and rhuematoid arthritis, no hysterical information here. In fact we have a page about rheumatoid arthritis which includes articles regarding overlap issues, it may be of interest to you.

I always think scleroderma is enough to be getting on with let alone having it with another disease so well done on the "keeping happy". Thoroughly agree with this way of thinking and many others here do as well so you'll be right at home.

Take care.
