Was diagnosed Monday (10-21) with "mild scleroderma" and am now waiting on more labs.(results 11/04). I am not new to the "autoimmune merry-go-round" but really didn't want another dx. Am wondering if anyone has ever been diagnosed with a different autoimmune disease only to find that it really was part of the Lupus group? I have done a bit of research since Monday and noticed that some of the symptoms are the same as those already diagnosed.
One thing that has concerned me for the last 14 years is that I have a very high ANA count (1640) and it has never been addressed. In 2007 I was diagnosed with AIH with PBC overlap and Raynauds, and then in 2/2012 with COPD. Both of these have some of the same symptoms as this scleroderma.
