Has anyone with scleroderma tried glucosamine for joint pain in fingers. The joints of my ring finger on both hands is so painful that a handshake takes me to my knees. I take Celebrex and can tell when I don't take it but it doesn't seem to touch the pain in my hands. Many folks are recommending glucosamine but I'm afraid to "add collagen" with a disease that results from excess collagen production.
