Recently diagnosed with Crest. Main complaint was Raynauds, and given my age (59) Ordered lab tests. It turned out I'm ANA positive, centomers number also high. Gp diagnosis is Crest and refered me to the rheumatologist. His next appointment is in a month!!! I'm in absolute distress. Having terrible anxiety, unable to eat or sleep. Gp prescribed fluoxetine but had to stop taking it because my mouth became dry. I live out of my country and has no friends here. Feel so depressed and fearful that all I can think is death. Need some encouragement since I have a 17 years old that has autism.
