  1. The impact of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms in scleroderma (SSc): effects on sleep quality. Future studies should examine mechanisms underlying nocturnal GERD symptoms in SSc patients, and the impact of improved GERD symptom control on sleep quality. PubMed, Dis Esophagus, 01/31/2019. (Also see Reflux (Heartburn) and GERD and Sleep Disorders) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom. Please check the newsroom daily for updates on scleroderma and other related articles.
  2. Surgical management of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in patients with systemic sclerosis. Laparoscopic Roux–en–Y gastric bypasses as an anti–reflux procedure is safe and may provide an alternative to fundoplication in the treatment of GERD for systemic sclerosis patients with esophageal dysmotility. PubMed, Surg Endosc, 02/12/2018. (Also see Reflux (Heartburn) Prevention and Treatments) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom.

  3. Hi Everyone, I am new here and not yet diagnosed but I feel like an expert in this disease as my mother died 20 years ago from Scleroderma with CREST and Primary Biliary Cirrhosis. For the last 3-4 years I have suffered with joint pain in my toes and fingers along with severe fatigue. I have many other issues and have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Intracranial Hypertension; but that’s for a different forum! In October I was diagnosed with Raynaud’s and I have had GERD daily as well with it being as bad as bile rising up in my throat at night while I sleep. In December my doctor ran an ANA reflex which came back positive and reflexed to a positive Anti-Centromere B result. My primary care physician does not think I have Scleroderma as I do not have any skin involvement and he can bend my fingers easily. My fingers feel stiff and are painful and swollen everyday. I have requested him to refer me to UCSF Scleroderma clinic and they are reviewing my labs and X-rays and echocardiogram (which both were normal, I just have the abnormal labs) as well as my medical history. Every day feels like a living misery. Mornings are brutal and I barely have any energy to get ready for work. I tire so easily. After I get home from work, I change my clothes and get in bed. I also suffer from severe muscle pains in my upper legs and arms. It's a struggle everyday to do normal activities. I was just hoping to hear of anyone else who might be in the same boat I am? Yet I hope no one is! I am trying to be proactive with this as I don’t want to hear the same words my mom did, “You have about 2 years to live.” Any advice or anyone who wants to share their experiences with me, I would be most grateful! All the best, Tracy
  4. My husband is an amazing person and has had persistent GERD for awhile. He had manometry which showed abnormal esophageal movement and he was sent to a rheumatologist, which I thought was a waste of time. His ANA was positive 1:160 and speckled. The specific scleroderma tests were negative. I don’t remember the names but there were 3 of them in addition to ANA. He has no Raynaud's, skin changes or any other symptoms. We have 3 young children and both my husband and I have anxiety. I work in healthcare and know how bad it can get. The test results were auto-released on his electronic medical chart. Nothing from doctors at all. I’m really worried and scared for him and our family. Has anyone had scleroderma present just as GERD?
  5. Bidirectional association between fibromyalgia (FM) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): two population–based retrospective cohort analysis. The present study suggests a bidirectional relationship between FM and GERD and there is a greater risk of developing GERD for patients with FM than developing FM for patients with GERD. PubMed, Pain, 2017 Oct;158(10):1971-1978. (Also see Fibromyalgia and Reflux (Heartburn) and GERD) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom.

  6. Hi everyone, I've had linear scleroderma on my left leg from the age of 8 (I'm now 23) I was always told I will never have the systemic version of scleroderma, but over the last month I've had stomach problems. My doctor has now decided to send me for a Scope exam to find out what's wrong. I'm just wondering if anyone has experienced stomach/digestive problems as a result of being diagnosed with linear scleroderma? Look forward to hearing some answers, Louise
