very happy to have found this group! I'm just starting the process of being diagnosed, and more than a little scared. Wondered if anyone can offer come advice:
My GP suspects systemic sclerosis, as I fit the criteria pretty well (Reynaud's, skin changes, reflux, etc etc). I have been given an urgent referral, but told that it could be 2 months before I see someone. I live in Glasgow, and have considered going private to speed up the process - does anyone know of a good rheumatologist that does private work? My concern is about time - I'm now getting muscle weakness, and it's a bit scary to just sit and wait.
