Not been here for a while as no real progress. Ulcer developed on right index finger a year ago, since then have had Illoprost 3 times, been on Sildenafil 50mg 3 times a day, had fingernail removed (infected twice after procedure) all to no effect. The pain continues day and night and I am getting very fed up with it all. Have been seeing Rheumatologist every8 weeks and am to see a more senior consultant next week. The suggestion now is that I commence Bosartan. Has anyone else had this drug? does it work and are there any side effects. Vascular surgeon is reluctant to remove finger tip. Apart from all this I have 3 gastroscopies since Christmas to treat G.A.V.E , G.E.R.D is much worse too. I am seeing Cardiologist in 2 weeks as I have now developed some heart problems. Is there any end to all these problems associated with scleroderma and Raynauds?
