I posted awhile ago that the doc suspected I had scleroderma based on my terrible Raynaud's and a positive ANA with speckled & nucleolar pattern.

He tested a couple of weeks later for more specific antibodies, and that time the ANA came out negative, which was weird!

Well, I got another blood test a couple of weeks ago, and that one was back to a positive ANA of 1:640, with nucleolar pattern. So I don't know what happened with that second one, but I don't think it was right.

Sigh. I had been hoping the Raynaud's was from something else, but it sure is looking like scleroderma. Also starting to get some other symptoms, like short of breath, slight difficulty swallowing & dry mouth.

You may hear from me more as time progresses. Have a specialist app't at the end of June, so I'm sure that'll be the diagnosis.
