Hi everyone I was diagnosed with SSC 3 years ago on my first appointment with the specialist which was great but I have been suffering for many years with lots of the usual symptoms before my GP decided their was something underlined going on with my health! But lately my right leg is giving me so much pain and swells so bad I can't straighten it anymore, I'm use to painful joints everywhere but nothing as bad as this which is relentless nothing gives me relief I'm on hydrochloroquine which my specialist says will hopefully help with the arthritis but has anyone heard of people with SSC having knee replacements? I'm losing hope of ever walking severe pain free again, I take strong pain killers which help with my normal joint pains in hands feet elbows etc but this knee is unbearable! I'm only 48 😢
