Thanks for the welcome...
Well, the appointment was "interesting" I went through the methotrexate procedures with the specialist nurse ( who was lovely :) ) then had to see my dermatologist and her senior to get the final authorisation for treatment... well, he isn't so sure it is morphea!
Apparantly the first biopsy I had at least 4 years ago was "inconclusive" and the 2nd one was a completely different skin patch which has different presentation anyway! He now wants me to have 2 further biopsies done one around the original flare up years ago and one at the most recently affected area, so unfortunately that will be calf and mid-buttock on the same leg!
If the biopsies come back showing definitive "proof" that it is morphea then I go ahead with the methotrexate treatment. If they are inconclusive they will be sent to London for more analysis. In this case I will not start the MTX as he feels it would be inappropriate treatment.
The other thought he had about my "condition" was that it could be another form of telangiectasia... one which my consultant appeared not to be aware of LOL!
I am a little disappointed as I hoped to start treatment and see if I can get the spread halted, but of course if the diagnosis was wrong all along then I hope there is something out there (and maybe a little less harsh) I can use to at least slow it down.
Anyhow thanks for your interest, I will let you know what undoubledly slow progress is made in future :emoticons-thankyou:
