Sclero Systemic

3 posts in this topic

HI, has anyone experienced painful swelling from feet to chest? Just under the skin I get pain and warm feeling and the skin turns reddish. Don't know what to do. All the moisture cream is not helping. Any suggestions.

Hello Lynda

 

Sorry but I've no idea what this could be! I would have thought if it's something going on under the skin that moisturising isn't really going to help anyway. I have to say that I'd be seeing my doctor sooner rather than later because it could be anything. I know when we have scleroderma that the natural tendency to think everything is sclero related but it isn't always.

 

Please see your doctor and let us know what they say.

 

Take care.

Lynda,

I strongly agree with Amanda! That much painful swelling is definitely something I would see a doctor about. I'm no doctor, but it could be edema indicating a problem elsewhere. A few years ago, my whole body inflated. It felt like I was 9 months pregnant; however, it wasn't painful, just uncomfortable. I went to the doctor and it was a sign of another symptom that was developing. So please see your doctor.
