I was recently diagnosed with limited systemic scl and while my fingers have been swollen for almost a year, I just started having a finger starting to bend. It's not dramatic yet but it won't straighten like the rest and if I try to straighten it with my other hand somewhat painful.
Is there any physical therapy I can do to halt or slow this? My dr. has prescribed methotrexate and meloxicam, might either of these help?
