I have a "What happens when...." question for those of you that have been through many of the stages of this disease.
The tight skin on your face and hands and/or feet, was is a slow progression or did it seem as though you woke up one day with tight skin? I seem to be living through a slow evolution, watching my hands change every couple of days but my rheumatologist says that the sclerodactyly of the hands does not appear in patches, it encompasses the entire hand and up the arm. My face feels like a mask, I can tell it's changing but not my mouth yet.
I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to describe their experience with this hallmark symptom of limited scleroderma.
