My mother has suffered from this illness for nine years. As a cure she takes Flebo once a month, but we have seen so many doctors, there are some who say that she has Raynaud's Syndrome, but where we she is under treatment they say it is systemic scleroderma and that she should get this treatment.
In the exams her illness appears to be halted, but about a month ago she started having stomach problems. We don't understand anything anymore, everyone has been affected, and we are not calm anymore. If anybody knows where I could find a centre for this illness, please let me know, anything at all, please help me.
