treat. I was diagnosed in 1997 after suffering years of raynauds and undergoing numerous bowel operations. Apart from the bowel and difficulty with swallowing my main symptom is acute calcinosis. I began having lots of calcinosis on my right hand which was operated on ten years ago. However they came back within six months. I now have huge deposits on both elbows. Any suggestions, alternatively or medically for dealing with this. Thank you.
