Yup, it's CREST scleroderma, so at least it's the less agressive and slower-paced kind. So far there isn't too much worrisome stuff going on, the only possibility is some shortness of breath and heart palpitations that could theoretically point to pulmonary hypertension (which is really bad), but I recently stopped the medication for my Raynaud's (don't need it over the summer), and noticed the heart palpitations and shortness of breath have really gone down - so maybe it was just the meds, which would make me feel much better.
