    positive Scl-70 test

    Thanks for the reply,Joelf. What are the symptoms of Scleroderma, if you don't mind me asking. Perhaps there is a handy link I could access. J.

    positive Scl-70 test

    Hi there. My name is James, 33, from Preston. A few months back I visited a neurologist as I had tingling in feet and then hands. Since then I have started having muscle twitches all over my body with varying degrees of muscle cramps throughout my body. In addition, I also have difficulty swallowing. I am therefore fearful of motor neurone disease given these symptoms. When I saw the neurologist I only had tingling and his assessment was no neurological cause following clinical observation and an MRI of head and neck. However, of all the tests I had done the only posjtive was Scl-70 which my return letter from the neuro said there was no evidence of scleroderma. I am at a loss and naturally worried about my failing health. Can anyone advise re: scleroderma possibilities? Thank you.
