After almost four years on varying doses of pred (now 10mg) and see-sawing inflammatory markers, my GP has decided to send me to a rheumatologist at Macclesfield Hospital to see if there is any other underlying auto-immune condition causing the markers to stay higher than expected although after a few months they were down almost to normal. He mentioned scleroderma because he had noticed some tiny white marks above my top lip. It took a powerful magnifying mirror for me to see what he meant. He must have amazing eyesight!
Does anyone know anything about this condition? And does anyone know anything about the rheumies at Macclesfield?
