I went to the RA physio today. It went really well but when I undressed she saw the hardness that I have previously mentioned on here. She told me that she hasn't seen anything like it in 20years of RA work. Really nice she went to get a 2nd opinion, who then went and got a 3rd opinion in the way of a RA nurse who agreed she had no idea what it was, so off she went for the 4th opinion in the way of the RA consultant. I was at a different hospital so it wasn't my usual consultant. The RA consultant had a good look and said it could possibly be scleroderma but I would need a skin biopsy first. He said as I am seeing my consultant tomorrow he would not action anything. Felt really productive though as its the most help I've had in weeks. After some investigation I've had a read up ready for my consultant tomorrow but wondered has anybody got scleroderma????
I'm ready for a fight tomorrow at the consultant whether it be a new anti Tnf or tests for the hardness just know that tonight I won't be sleeping easy.
