I have been diagnosed with systematic scleroderma and it has affected my stomach and esophagus, among other things . My treatment is lansopranzole 30mg and domperidone before each meal. My rheumatologist has treated me with an immunosuppressant infusion called mabthera (drastic substance called rituximab) this July and my skin has softened somewhat. On the other hand, I have trouble swallowing and keeping good down. The worst is a choking feeling. My pharynx hurts and feels really tight . I would like to know if anyone else has the same symptoms and how to copy with this situation. Last year I had an examination called esophagus manometry to define scleroderma damage and it was little . Ian worried it has worsened but I don't know if there is a solution. I forgot to mention I live in Greece and scleroderma is quite rare. So any help, info or advise would be most welcome
