I'm new and not really sure how this all works... I was diagnosed with UCTD two weeks ago. I've had Raynaud's since I was about 9 years old but about a year ago it started to get really really bad and I developed lots of other symptoms... The positive ANA result was the clincher in the diagnosis. I'm a bit upset, actually very upset. I don't really understand what it is or what to do. I don't feel like I have anyone to talk to and I'm feeling really down. I just wondered if anyone had any advice... Feeling very alone :(
