Scleroderma can be a difficult condition to deal with but you need to work with your doctor. Reporting of symptoms such as 'is dryness of eyes or mouth getting worse?' or 'have you found any lumps under your chin or armpits?' etc are very important. It is easy to get confused with the number of symptoms reported in text books and may seem there is no end.
There are lots of treatment options available and not all patients with scleroderma have a difficult time. Get a 2DECHO heart scan, nerve functions (if reqd.) done and check regularly with your doctor.
