Angela M: Sclerodermia Diffusa

Italia

Cream Jonquil by Sherrill Knaggs, ISN Artist Ho 58 anni e mi è stata diagnosticata questa malattia circa 6 anni fa, ma probabilmente l'avevo già prima. Finora ho avuto una polimiosite che si è risolta con una breve cura di cortisone, ho una esofagite tenuta a bada da farmaci e qualche problema cardiaco.

Da un po' di tempo le mie mani si sono gonfiate e il dito medio è un pò piegato. La reumatologa che mi segue dice che è la malattia, l'ortopedico sostiene che è un dito a scatto forse da operare. A chi credere?

Sono già stata operata di encondroma ad un dito, amartoma ad un polmone, angioplastica, tunnel carpale. Attualmente prendo Ticlopidina 250mg due volte al di', Azatioprina 50mgal di', Sotalolo 40mg tre al di' omeprazen 20mg al mattino, folina 5mg, Inegy 10/20mg alla sera.

La cosa che comunque mi fa piu' male è che i miei figli mi credono una malattia immaginaria.Forse non vogliono vedere?
