Recent diagnosed in Sclero Forums (MAIN) Posted July 21 Hi Jeannie, I just want to welcome you to Sclero Forums. Hopefully you can consult a listed scleroderma expert. I know that's not easy, especially when it requires an out of state consult. Sometimes doctors seem to bend over backwards to not appear concerned, lest we catch their anxiety. I actually feel more comforted when they allow themselves to show a bit of kindness and compassion. It's like then, I can let them worry about it, so that I don't have to! Give your doctor the benefit of the doubt. They are likely more concerned than they are letting on. And see if you can get an expert on your medical team, too.
