  1. Hi Marybeth, Although Im not sure it's related I too have sinus issues. It's a daily thing, and I get infections frequently . I'm currently on antibiotics. I've asked my specialist about it, and he assures me its unrelated. It may be worth your while to get a sinus CT. to see if there is anything causing this ie, infection, fungus etc.
  2. Well, this is a new thought, now I must run to the mirror and evaluate lol
  3. Very strange coincidence I'm sure. I am sorry to hear this however.
  4. Nice to see you are keeping a bit of humor. Have a Twinkie for me!
  5. No good advice from me, just deep sympathy . I don't sleep much either, and I feel your pain.
  6. Hey Janet, I get the feeling of being unreliable. I always have the best intentions, and frankly 95% of the time, my plans don't carry out. But thats OK. I used to be very hard on myself. Now I figure "it is what it is!" Nothing I can do about it, other than be kind to myself, and stay on the positive side as much as possible. Which is my natural inclination so that helps. I know there is no cure for me, but I won't waste the rest of my days, letting Scleroderma be my life. I have Scleroderma, I am NOT Scleroderma. I rarely talk to people about it because most don't u
  7. Angelique, You are so welcome, and I will look forward to hearing about your follow up. Have a wonderful weekend!
  8. Hi Janet, Reading your post made me very sad, because there is hope. My heart goes out to you. I have to say I'm disappointed in your doctor. Here is a link to a specialist in Australia, and I hope it's different than who you are seeing. If it's not, I would find another Rheumatologist. Scleroderma is rare, BUT symptoms vary from person to person. There is no blanket list of things you need to have or tests. I feel your doctor is doing you a disservice . Don't give up, see another doctor that you feel is listening to you and that you can communicate with well.
  9. Hello, Welcome to the forums. I'm sorry you are experiencing so many symptoms that are hard to explain. The nature of any autoimmune disease can vary so much from person to person. First of all it's good you are seeing a Rheumatologist. Often times, it becomes test after test to rule out different causes, and more often than not, we don't get solid answers. Easier said than done, but try to go with the flow, and let your doctor work through the process. It can actually take years to come to the proper diagnosis, if any at all. I know that's not encouraging, but it's the. nature of
  10. Hello, I'm so sorry to hear about your wife. Here is a link to Scleroderma Experts. There doesn't appear to be one in your area. But a good start is to find a Rheumatologist. I would suggest the U of WA.
  11. Hello my girl! Just wanted to give you a big hug for being the brave one you are!
  12. Hello my friend, Remember, one day at a time, otherwise everything can be so overwhelming. I had myself in the grave many times to find out it all wasn't so bad. Easier said than done, but don't worry until there is something to worry about. And even then I find out it wasn't as bad as it was in my mind. :)
  13. Its always frustrating when you feel you are not being heard. The relationship between you and your doctors are oh so important. I've been known to fire mine and move along to one I have better communication with. It's your life, your body and your dime. Remember they work for you. :)
