Hi everyone, I had a hospital appointment yesterday. It went as well as it could, I'm to have a ct scan cos I"e not had one for a couple of years, just to see how my lungs are, because my last 2 lung function tests show my lungs are smaller, than they were. I'm also starting a new medication for my raynauds, because I could not tolerate nifedipine, the new one is called amlodipine, has anyone else been prescribed this? I'm finding that the pain in my ankles knees and hips is getting more noticeable, and the skin on my hands and fingers tighter. This (systemic sclerosis ) is a very complex condition and never stops surprising me with ever more symptoms! It"s good that we all have this site and the scleroderma society site to talk with each other.
