Adding to the List

As if Scleroderma and it's plethora of issues and complications, weren't enough to deal with, it now looks like we might be adding another to the list.

Another "my body hates me, Sclero related, autoimmune disease" called dermatomyositis.  It's just a maybe, so, do't be alarmed.  I'm not.  I'm annoyed, but other than that, I'm really not phased.

I've had what I thought was a shit-tastic case of acne for the past 2 weeks.  Even on my eyes.  I thought it was odd.  I've never had bad acne.  Even as a teenager.  I've been fortunate, through everything to have a great complexion.

This week I have an upper respiratory infection and when I went to get it checked out, just to be safe, the doctore noted my skin issues and diagnosed them as a rash and that he thinks its dermatomyositis - or at least Scleroderma related.  He even through out how similar it looks to the rash that patients with Lupus experience.

So, really, who knows.  He was leaning mor towards the myositis, but he's not a specialist.  so, we'll just wait and see what the man has to say about it when we see him next week.
