  • I didn't think that there was a relation between schleroderma and gall bladder disease. Sorry about your insurance. I hope that situation will never happen in the UK.

  • Scleroderma can get into any part of the body, as far as I'm aware. It's about thickening of skin tissue, so it's not selective over what tissue. I can only suggest to ' Anitamoore forjesus ', that you're careful of what you eat . Try to avoid fatty foods, esp. fried stuffs, also chocolate I found was an irritant,(although I do succumb occasionally).Good Luck!

  • A friend of mine with scleroderma used reglan and ended up with Parkinson's disease (shaking tremors and could not hold up her head anymore). "The dr. said it was a side effect of the drug. I don't think that risk is worth taking it; I went off the reglan. I'm sorry I cannot help you about the insurance problem. Can you go on Medicaid?
