Hi, I am seeing a Rheumatologist in October for my 3rd appointment. Still no definite diagnosis, he says I have possible sjogrens syndrome, definate raynauds, and possible SLE, but my blood tests and xrays are clear.
Overnight I have developed a hard shiny patch to the left of my abdomen, about the size of my hand. It is now wrinkled looking and my whole abdomen is gradually being affected, and has started to peel.
I wondered if any body else suffers this, it seems such an odd thing to happen. My skin is not overly dry normally, and I have not been in the sun.
I also seem to be losing a lot of hair recently, it feels really thin, and my fingernails are terrible, peeling in layers almost to half way down the nail bed. I do not use harsh chemicals of any sort, and always use gloves to wash up.
Best wishes Caz
