Hi everyone - this is my first post even though I've been in this group for about 3 years or so! Was diagnosed with LcSSc in 2012 after repeated attacks of Raynauds and one of my fingers eventually turning a purple/grey colour permanently and I was unable to bend it. Have had a digital sympathectomy and a few courses of Iloprost over the past 3 years along with medication. Have recently started to notice a strange feeling in my throat - a bit like when you are choked up/upset over something and feels like something is stuck there I.e. I need to swallow to try and make it feel better? Just wondered if anyone else had experienced anything similar. I know CREST include esophogeal problems but this doesn't feel like heartburn or acid reflux. Appreciate any comments, thanks x.
