In spite of gp requesting an urgent follow up appointment with rheumatologist still having to wait till mid October after a wait of 6 months. GP has been unable to get results for my cardio and lung function tests which were done in April. Has been most frustrating as my symptoms have become worse. Omeprazole now increased to 40 mg + needing to take gaviscon, gp intendingnto send me to gastro cons . Have today started on Prazosin for Raynauds , will see how that goes, I reacted badly to Nifedipine so hope this will be ok. Raynauds had been getting worse even in warm weather, have been unable to wear sandals this year, I feel so silly having to wear socks and shoes in the sun! Hving been using electric blanket all summer too. Off on holiday to Canada at we so hope I will be ok on long flight, has anyone had problems with flying with scleroderma? Gp says I should be ok. I hope when I eventually see rheumatologist I will get some support and treatment.
