  1. Crest Syndrome?

    Hi. I am new here so I will give you a quick summary. I am a 40 year old mother of 2. I have been married for 5 years. I went to my doctor about 6 weeks ago. He sent me to a rheumatologist because he thought I had RA. The rheumatologist took lots of blood and xrayed every joint in my body. He then sent me for an echo of my heart and a pulmonary?(lung) test. He has now told me that I have Crest Syndrome. I feel very lost and confused. I really don't know what this is, what it does or what I can do about it. My rheumatologist explained it (sort of) but I guess it went over my head or maybe I just didn't want to hear it. But the things he told me, that I remember, didn't really sound bad, but I have started looking it up on the internet and it sounds alot more serious than he made it out to be. So now I am confused and scared about what comes next. Any help or information I can get will be greatly appreciated.
