So now waiting for results of repeat blood work to see if ANA still positive with same pattern and see if white count(slightly low) and CRP(slightly high) have returned to normal.

I have been doing much reading and realize that I must insist on a referral to the teaching hospital rheumies. I realize that even though Scleroderma is rare, I just may have some of the early signs. One of my early biggest complaints to my original pcp was morning swelling of my hands and feet - (sausage fingers and toes) she said I was eating too much salt. The current rheumy never asked about any of the symptoms or really even examined me. Maybe some one should have told me not to wear makeup to the Dr. so they could see your skin, maybe then she would have seen the tiny red dots on my face and how shiney my skin is - I thought it odd that my wrinkles were not as noticeable and my face was not droopy with a 54 lb weight loss.

I'm pretty sure it's overlap and a mixed bag at this point but definitely want to have a Dr that knows about what to look out for. Only have to wait til Wednesday for next appt. I have realized that this will be a long process and I just can't freak out every time a test result comes back abnormal or I read something upsetting - stress is no good.
