Results outcome. in Sclero Forums (MAIN) Posted July 20, 2016 · Report reply Hi Cathy, Ir's common for scleroderma to stabilize, so it's usually safe to figure that if it's not progressing, then it's probably stable or even improving. The only caveat is, never skip your recommended follow-up appointments just because you feel fine, because occasionally some things can progress silently. So, overconfidence is silly with this disease, but I doubt that will be a hazard for you. Ask your doctor what symptoms you can safely ignore, and when you should seek medical care. Our hearts are supposed to beat hard and strong under some conditions, like exercise or anxiety, so it's more a matter of what is in the realm of normal for you, with all your conditions. You may even want to see if you are eligible for a cardio rehab program, where you can safely build exercise tolerance while being carefully monitored. Its very easy to get frightened from heart problems, and then avoid doing things that will make them stronger and healthier. It's good to relax and truly enjoy the pleasant spells when symptoms relent a bit.
