Hi everyone. New to this.. I've had a diagnosis of Raynauds for over 30 years (52 now) and although pretty severe- have coped well and kept smiling. However recently in hospital with severe kidney infection and now have inflammatory bowel disease and some random joint swelling that comes up, resolves and then moves! Doc at hospital has ordered ANA test and I'm waiting the result. Had one about 10 years ago - negative then. Apparently I have to have an ECHO too, as chest X-ray may indicate pulmonary prominence. I'm now terrified and struggling to wait on tests and rests. Has anyone been through this??
Best wishes and good health to all
