After doing much searching... and having the bottoms of my fingers swell-- not the tops... and having swallowing trouble and biliary trouble..... I am almost certain that I have scleraderma.

If my family doc won't refer me to a rheumatologist... what in the heck do I do? When I bend my fingers, they puff out......

If you have had this disorder..... PLEASE write me.
