  1. Hi! I'm a 40 year old woman from Scandinavia. I've been trying to find answer to next question without success: is SCL-75 similar to SCL-70? I've been tested in 2015 to be SCL-75 positive but I was discharged from hospital with no diagnosis. My lungs are the worst. From 2012-2016 there were several 4-6 weeks times in a year with constant feeling of shortness of breath. On the other hand, there's been now almost two years time without significant symptoms in lungs until recently. Is this typical to scleroderma lung involvement, either fibrosis or interstitial lung disease? My x-ray from last week was normal. I also have severe hair loss, telangiectases, Raynaud's, heartburn, and muscle aches. My general practitioner doctor put me with high speed to hospital pulmonologist. I'm waiting (totally terrified!!) to get my appointment and also for an HRCT scan, any day now. Is there any hope...?
