My doctor has sent for further lab work. I have not initially been diagnosed. I read up on nucleolar pattern and I'm wxremely worried that I may have scleroderma. I have no skin symptoms. i was actually going to the doctor for headaches , dizziness, and jaw pain. My sides are sore somedays also. After reading up on the disease I'm nothing short of terrified. I'm 25 with three kids and all I can think is that I might not be around to watch them grow or I may be too sick. I am p retty much looking for reassurance at this point because I am sick with worry. Can people with scleroderma live normal lives? Long live? Does the yet I had mean I have the disease without a doubt?
