A year ago, after a biopsy, I was diagnosed morphea. I read about this on the internet, and I do not have most of the apparent and most common symptoms.
The skin is not damaged, my muscle has a depression that becomes deeper with time, and I also feel a weird sensation. I haven't had any treatment besides a cream.
