Kelly: CREST (Limited Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis)

 

My name is Kelly, and I am a fifty-three year old web developer and mother of two daughters. Two months ago, I was diagnosed with CREST (limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis - lcSSc). I feel lucky. As I write this, my only obvious symptom is a finger which is unusually sensitive to cold due to the fibrosis. I have been diagnosed early. At least, I think I have been diagnosed early. I have had thickened fingers and Raynaud's since I was a teenager. After I reached menopause in 2008, the Raynaud's, which had been a once or twice a year phenomenon, suddenly began to appear once or twice a week...


There are over 1,000 patient and caregiver stories on the main Sclero.org site.

Warm regards,
