Hi all, I'm a 29 year old woman with diagnosed hypothyroidsm (Hashimoto's) I have a few symptoms, although I have seen many doctors they tend to ignore me. My symptoms are: -For 1 year already I have been having night sweats, got a bit better with thyroid medication -Raynaud's (diagnosed) and chilblains in cold -Numb hands and feet at night, or when I cross my legs etc -ANA came always negative but the last one was 'weak positive' with all sub tests (ana panel) negative -ESR and CRP very low I have no fatigue, joint pain, swelling or stiffness. Doctors I've seen told me not to worry about weak positive ANA but I am worried. I was wondering if those could be symptoms of Sclero? How were your test results? Anybody experiencing similar symptoms? Also what is exactly skin thickening, how does the skin look like when it's thickened. I mean the color of it, also I heard something like fingerprints wouldn't be seen anymore etc, can you please give more details? Thanks!!
