Hello everyone & happy Christmas. I have recently come to this site from Lupus UK. I thought I'd check it out as I've had Raynaud's all my life, Lupus & Sjogren's were diagnosed about 4 years ago.
I have recently started to get shiny, stretched skin on my face. I thought it was great at first as my lines disapeared, until I realized it could be related to scleroderma! I have some other classic symptoms, but just thought they were random things or caused by lupus.
I have my rheumatology review next week, so will let them know about this. My question is are these kind of symptoms usually fluctuating or progressing, & what sort of tests are used to confirm a sclerodrma diagnosis? If it's anything like lupus its usually a 'wait & see' situation, which can be very frustrating.
Many thanks in advance. X
