  1. Hello. I am a female and 62 years old. I recently had a positive ANA and am just looking for information while waiting 3 months before I can see the rheumatologist. My ANA was 1:32 and in the comments it says anti-centromere pattern observed. A few of my search results lead me here, so I joined hoping to learn as much as possible. Two years ago my dermatologist requested that I have an ANA test because of the (as she described it) "red butterfly rash" on my face. I thought I had rosacea, but she said it is not. I tested negative. At the follow up visit she told
  2. Hello Everyone, I'm 30 years old and found out two weeks ago that I tested positive for ANA (with a titer of 1:1280) and tested positive for SCL 70 (3). I don't have any symptoms (other than cold hands - but it's winter) and the only reason I was tested was because I'm undergoing infertility treatment after having three miscarriages. My infertility doctor sent me to a rheumatologist for further investigation and he said he does not know if or how soon I will develop Scleroderma, but cautioned that my ANA titer was high. Has anyone else had a high positive ANA and tested positive for SCL-70 wit
  3. Hi. Autoimmune diseases run in my family. So after being diagnosed with Raynauds,fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, IBS, arthritis, peripheral polyneuropathy, and a host of other disorders, it was not a surprise that my bloodwork came back positive for scleroderma antibodies and inflammation. My oral surgeon, who I am seeing for possible oral lichen planus, also viewed the initial results and asked if I knew I have scleroderma, By the way, I have also started bruising quite easily and am very slow to heal. My general practitioner sent me to a rheumatologist who repeated the bloodw
  4. Hello, I am new here. I recently had blood work done due to severe pain in the middle joints of my left pinky and thumb that has not subsided in months.

  5. Hello. My name is Elizabeth and I am a 36-years-old. I started experiencing joint pain in my hips 16 years ago. I was pregnant at the time. Over the years the joint pain has spread. My areas of most trouble are my wrist, knees, and shoulders. I also experience IBS symptoms quite frequently. I also have Raynauds which mainly affects my toes. My toes get numb when exposed to cold and get very pale. They never turn blue or purple. I guess I really should have gone to a doctor earlier but I thought I knew what the problem was. My daughter broke 3 bones by the time she was in Kindergarten. The
  6. Hi! I am new to this forum, but I was wondering if anyone here who has Scleroderma also has had Urticaria of any sort? Urticaria is breaking out in hives or a rash. Mine happens when exposed to cold, such as grocery shopping in the cold section, a/c in car blowing on me more than a minute or so and making my skin cold, etc.... I don't develop the hives, but I do get a flat, red and white rash. My "ice cube test" came back positive for Cold Urticaria also. I developed Cold Urticaria March 15th, 2012 and while it may be totally unrelated, I also got a positive ANA of 1:320 with a nucl
