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 :(

Hello again!I posted a while ago and wanted to update everyone on my throat, it is the most bothersome sysmptom for me. I went to an ear nose and throat specialist in July, she put a tube down my throat and said all good up to the vocal cords go see a gastroenterologist. I went to see her today, she will do the same but down to my stomach. She says it sounds more like Sjogrens than like...
Today I went to see the Family Dr and the Rheumatologist. The family Dr took 3 tubes of blood to check my blood count, a metabolic profile, TSH, and A1C. My BP was 140/98, so he was concerned and talked about upping my meds. After some errands and a meal, I went to the rheumy who was concerned that my BP was too low. It was 103/70. You see, my meds had finally kicked it! Anyway, he took my hair...
