Diagnosed today,with a question mark

7 posts in this topic

Hi, I was just diagnosed today, with a question mark. My esophagus is not working, and a few other things are not what they should be.

 

I think this forum is going to be a great help. I had not heard of this ailment until today. Here's hoping for some good news soon.

 

I will be seeing another doctor shortly.

 

Thanks for being here, and HUGS TO ALL.

Welcome! I'm sure that you will find lots of help here from people who really know about this condition. There have been a number of threads on problems with the esophagus and what people have done to improve their situations.

 

Please let us know what the new doctor finds.

Hi Grammycats ,

 

Welcome to the group. My son started out with esophageal dysmotility as his major issue, too. He's doing okay now that he was put on Plaquenil. Hopefully, the other doctor (a rheumatologist?) will help you.

 

As for your name, Grammycats, do you have lots of cats? I'm the crazy cat lady in our family; we have 6 inside cats and 1 feral cat, outside, that I feed every night.

 

Take care, Everyone.

Hi Grammycats,

 

Welcome to the forum, you will find a great deal of support and information here!!

 

As to the question mark? What caused the question mark to be added? I have esophageal issues, Raynaud's, Sjogrens symptoms, and some swelling etc., but no actual diagnosis yet. I see a new rheumatologist next week.

 

Again, welcome.

Hi Grammycats,

 

Welcome to the Forums! We're a friendly bunch and everyone is great about sharing their experiences. We also have a tremendous amount of information on the main site about scleroderma and its issues and also about other autoimmune diseases. Every week we publish at least nine 'news' articles dealing with scleroderma, autoimmune disease, and other health and well-being subjects so you'll be kept up to date on the latest research findings, etc. You might also want to check out our twice-weekly chat sessions and meet some of us in real time.

 

If you have any trouble navigating around the site, please let us know. I hope to see you around and that you'll let us know how you get on with the new doctor.

 

Best wish and a big ISN hug! :emoticon-hug:
